A significant change has occurred within the Jesuit Provinces across America. After six years of intense visioning and implementation of processes, St. Francis Xavier officially became a member parish of the JESUITS WEST PROVINCE on July 1. The Provincial for this newly-formed province is Fr. Scott Santarosa, who will visit Phoenix in August. The provincial headquarters for Jesuits West will be located in Portland, Oregon. Previously, our parish was within the California Province. This newly-structured province is quite large, serving the entire west coast: Nogales, Arizona to Fairbanks, Alaska.
