Welcome...

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Thank you for visiting our website and I hope that you will get a sense of the identity and mission of our parish community. St. Francis Xavier Parish, administered by the Jesuit Fathers of the California Province, has been in existence for more than 80 years and is located in the center of metropolitan Phoenix. At its founding, the parish was outside the city limits. Our beautiful church building was opened in 1959 and seats 1,500 people. More than 6,000 households are registered in the parish and our elementary school has 600 young boys and girls being educated in the Jesuit tradition. The parish is vibrant with 58 ministries supported by paid staff and numerous, generous volunteers. Evangelization, education, the celebration of the Sacraments, the promotion of justice and service, are of primary concern for us as we strive to live and spread the Gospel. The principles of Ignatian spirituality guide our efforts to bring people closer to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Sincerely yours in Christ, Rev. Daniel J. Sullivan, S.J. Pastor

R.C.I.A. Inquiry

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is not a class or series of programs, but rather, it’s a process that allows the participants the opportunity to explore the Catholic faith gradually through sharing, formal teaching, liturgical celebrations, prayer, and fellowship. Those interested in learning more about Jesus Christ and the teaching of the Catholic Church, without any pressure or commitment, are encouraged to seek answers. There will be an Open House/Information night on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 6:30pm in the Ignatian Spirituality Center. Please plan to attend the open house if you have any questions before getting started. We will explain the entire process and provide you with a calendar for the whole year. This will also be a chance for you to ask any questions you may have about joining the Catholic Church. The Inquiry Process starts on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 6:30pm in the Ignatian Spirituality Center. You do not need to bring anything with you (except an open mind and heart); we will provide all that you need including Bibles and Catechisms of the Catholic Church. Once again, thank you for considering St. Francis Xavier’s RCIA process. We sincerely hope the experience will be one that will last a lifetime. We look forward to serving you. For more information, please contact Dawn Waskowich at 602-212-4522 or dawn.waskowich@sfxsj.org or Kimberly Rodriguez at 602-212-4516 or kim.rodriguez@sfxsj.org.
