Welcome to St. Francis Xavier

"If the Church is to fulfill its providential destiny, evangelization as the joyful, patient, and progressive preaching of the saving Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ must be your absolute priority."
St. John Paul II

Peace and blessings to you and your loved ones! Thanks for visiting our website, a great way to learn more about our Parish Family.

Following in the footsteps of our patron, St. Francis Xavier, we are called to go forth, as men and women who have encountered Jesus Christ, to be "missionary disciples" always bringing the love of God to our brothers and sisters by our witness to the Faith - "going out to the fringes of humanity" that our doors may be constantly open, welcoming new members and building the Kingdom of God here on earth.

May this website serve as the beginning of an encounter with one another. As we gather around the altar of sacrifice to celebrate the Eucharist, may we encounter Christ above all who calls us to be saints.

May the Lord bless and keep you always!

    Oftentimes, the teachings of the Catholic Church (which we believe are the inspired teachings of Christ) are misunderstood, misinterpreted, or misconstrued by many people, both within and outside the Church. Our secular media has a tendency to "misrepresent" the Church in her teachings, oftentimes causing conflict, confusion, and division.
