St Francis Xavier Catholic Church

SUNDAY TO HELP THE WHOLE WORLD NEXT SUNDAY- OCTOBER 22nd Every year, something special happens in October - - World Mission Sunday joins all Catholics of the world into one community of faith. At Mass that Sunday, we recommit ourselves to our common vocation, through Baptism, to be missionaries, through prayer, participation in the Eucharist, and by giving generously to the collection for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.
If you do not receive donation envelopes, Propagation of the Faith donation envelopes are available in the racks in the vestibule.

SFX BOOK GROUP OCTOBER Please join us on October 15th at 10:40am in the rectory to discuss our next selection, Father James Martin's new book, Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBTQ Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion and Sensitivity. We look forward to having you with us. All are invited.

SUNDAY AT THE MOVIES Sunday, October 22nd at 10:45AM. Everyone is invited to come watch the movie Finding Dory (PG) in our rectory basement screening room right after the 9:30 Mass. We'll be serving bagels, juice, and other light refreshments for a family - style indoor picnic with entertainment. Admission is free, but we are asking everyone to reserve places in advance. Look for the sign-up sheet in the church vestibule. Children of all ages are welcome, accompanied by an adult. Come kick off the beginning of a new year of great events here at St. Francis Xavier and meet other parishioners.

THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION Sunday, October 29th at the 12:15 Mass Bishop Paul Sanchez will be here at Saint Francis Xavier on to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation. Please remember in your prayers all the young people who will be blessed with the sign of the cross and sealed with the gift of the Holy spirit on that day.
All are invited to join with them in prayer at this Mass and to welcome Bishop Sanchez.

NEW MASS SETTING We are using a new musical setting of the Mass. Entitled "Mass of the Angels and the Saints" and written by Steve Janco, it has been used at major diocesan events for the last several years and works well in both Traditional and Contemporary Liturgies.
