Welcome to St. Francis Xavier Church
Our mission statement
St. Francis Xavier Parish is a Roman Catholic, Jesuit community of faith called together by God to experience Jesus Christ in His Word, in the sacraments of the Church, and in each other.
We, as the body of Christ, joined in Baptism and inspired by the grace of the Holy Spirit, enrich our faith through prayer and worship, spiritual formation, intellectual rigor, diversity of membership, hospitality and fellowship, attention to family life, and concern for social justice.
Guided by the spirituality of St. Ignatius Loyola, we strive to use our many gifts for the greater glory of God.
