St Francis Xavier Catholic Church

JACK'S SANDWICHES Wednesday, November 22nd at 6pm, St. Francis Xavier parishioners will gather in the rectory to make turkey sandwiches and snacks to distribute to the hungry in our community for Thanksgiving. We are seeking volunteers to donate food and supplies or to help us assemble the bags on Wednesday night. We would love for you to join us in this effort. If you're interested in getting involved, please email Patrice Kugler.

ADVENT WREATH LIGHTING SIGN UP Each Sunday during Advent our wreath is blessed and a candle is lit. Individuals and families are invited to participate in lighting the Advent wreath at one of the Masses over the four Advent weekends. Sign up in the Church vestibule.

ADVENT GIVING TREE The Christmas tree to the left of the altar (in front of St. Francis Xavier shrine) has paper ornaments on it. All are invited to take home an ornament, obtain a gift for the person whose name is on that ornament, wrap it and place it under the tree no later than December 10. Please tape the paper ornament to the gift so the right person receives it! Our efforts with our Annual Giving Tree brighten the holidays for those in need.

MONTHLY PRAYER GROUP Tuesday, November 21st at 3pm in the rectory. All are invited to join us for some time with God and each other. Come and experience a moment of God's grace and reflect on the Holy Scriptures, letting our Father speak to your heart.
