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.

Help us bring Backpacks to Belize! SFX Sister Parish Committee has provided school supplies for St. Martin de Porres School in our past delegation trips. SFX parishioners have been generous in supplying these school supplies which the Delegation takes with us to Belize. This year for the Golden Anniversary of St. Martin de Porres, Fr. Matt Ruhl asked that we do something special this year. Fr. Matt suggested that we bring backpacks for the students as this is the only item they have to transport items between home and school. The Sister Parish Committee has purchased 300 backpacks which we will be taking with the Delegation to Belize to provide something special for the Golden Anniversary. Each backpack cost $10. So please buy a backpack or more for the students at St. Martin de Porres. You may buy a backpack online at the following link: https://sfx-kc.weshareonline.org/BackpacksforBelize Checks or cash can also be sent to the SFX office made out to “SFX Social Ministries” with “Backpacks” listed in the Memo section of the check. Thanks for your donations for the children of St. Martin de Porres!
