Bienvenidos! Para Español

Our faith community and I, Fr. Francis are delighted that you and your family have chosen Saint Francis Xavier Parish as your place for worship. Saint Francis Xavier, S.J. (Society of Jesus) showed a great zeal for missionary work, and just as him we strive to follow on the footsteps of such a great preacher and evangelizer for the Malaysians.

We welcome you as Christ! Whether you are a member or a visitor, we pray that you find Christ among our brothers and sisters in the faith and trust that the word of God would stir your heart to actively listen and be prompted to action for the greater glory of God.  

OUR MISSION

As members of St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, we are a multicultural community guided by the Holy Spirit and the Catholic Church. Our family of faith leads a Christ-centered life to enrich our world through sacrament, worship, service, and hospitality.

   LENT - Fasting, Almsgiving, & Prayer

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021 and concludes at sundown on Holy Thursday, April 1, 2021; after which begins the Easter tridum from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday, April 4.

Lent is a 40 day season of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. It's a period of preparation to celebrate the Lord's Resurrection at Easter. During Lent, we seek the Lord in prayer by reading Sacred Scripture; we serve by giving alms; and we practice self-control through fasting. We are called not only to abstain from luxuries during Lent, but to a true inner conversion of heart as we seek to follow Christ's will more faithfully. We recall the waters of baptism in which we were also baptized into Christ's death, died to sin and evil, and began new life in Christ. (USCCB)

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Roman Catholics. Fridays during lent are days of abstinence.
