Submitted by stfxweb on Thu, 08/23/2018 - 23:40

More than 110,00 students will be homeless this school year, and stretched extremely thin. Homeless famlies simply can't afford many of the basic items their kids need for school. As we have done in past years, St. Francis Xavier Social Justice Ministry will be accepting donations of NEW backpacks and other school supplies through the weekend of August 18/19.

"LET THE CHILDREN COME TO ME"

Submitted by stfxweb on Thu, 08/23/2018 - 00:38

Our Faith Formation Programs for children and teens are based on the belief that God calls us "to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with our God". Our main goal is to help the children know how much God loves them, to help them develop a strong personal relationship with Jesus and enable them to discover the richness of our Catholic faith.
We are looking for assistance with our programs. Sharing your love of God and your faith with the young people of our parish can be a very rewarding experience.

  • Do you know a neighbor or friend who has expressed a desire to learn more about the Catholic faith and perhaps, to become part of our community?
  • Has your spouse has been thinking about becoming a Catholic and does not know how to proceed?
  • Have you been explaining your faith to someone?

If the answer to any of the above questions is "Yes", then you should know about the RCIA - the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
