St. Francis Xavier participates in Northside Catholic Youth Ministry, an inter-parish effort to provide Catholic youth in the area with a healthy and Catholic social outlet. The youth group meets Sunday afternoons from 2-4pm at various parishes, and their website can be found here.
Care for the Homebound
St. Francis Xavier makes sure to bring extraordinary ministry of communion to those homebound and faithful Catholics who are no longer able to attend Mass. For details, please contact the parish office.
St. Francis Xavier is blessed to have Mr. Taylor Giese as organist and music director, and Miss Xanthe Kraft as cantor. Both are well educated, responsible, and gifted musicians who contribute much to our parish. Additionally, at our Missa Cantata, many faithful parishioners volunteer their time to serve as a schola.
While not a large enough parish to feature a year-round program of catechesis, St. Francis Xavier provides education for first confession and first communion every year in the spring.For details, please contact the parish office.
St. Francis Xavier parish is fortunate to be able to serve our neighbors in need through a food bank, which we run jointly with St. Peter's Lutheran church. This program is of exceptional importance, as many in our area struggle with food insecurity.
