St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church is dedicated to helping each member feel as though they belong to a community of believers committed to serving and helping as Jesus Christ did. It is our belief that each member should be given opportunities to use their time and talents to the best of their ability to further the kingdom of God.


There are plenty of opportunities to get involved either in ministering at Mass, to the homebound and sick, teaching our youth, volunteering at our school, helping at our Lenten fish fries and other fund-raisers, becoming a member of a committee, and others…


“We cannot stand idly by, enjoying our riches and freedom if, in any place, the Lazarus of the 21st Century stand at our doors.”
