Realizing the Master's Plan

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

I am thrilled to announce we have $2.9 million remaining to complete our $25 million capital campaign! Just two years ago we completed the final phase of our School construction, and last month we realized the milestone of dedicating our Parish Center and Education & Community Outreach Center. What lifetime memories we have all shared, celebrated and realized together!

If you have not had a chance to stop by and visit, I invite you to explore our new Parish Center. To list a few of the many highlights...

  • Anderson Hall is a great gathering space unlike anything the parish has had before, providing onsite facilities for St. Francis Xavier families to gather for life and family celebrations.

  • We are thrilled to have the space to provide for the St. Vincent de Paul ministry to the needy.

  • We are so very blessed to have space to provide for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program, which shares our faith with children from three years old to fifth grade.

  • You may sense the holiness in the chapel and the serenity of the prayer garden as the landscaping matures and benches are added for folks to rest and listen to the soothing water of the fountain.

  • Our Education and Community Outreach Center is home to essential community outreach programs, a space from where we will expand programming dedicated to enhancing the lives and services to those in need.

This is our faith and mission in action. From under one roof, we will expand the Jesuit influence in Arizona.

As we celebrate our new Parish Center, I am asking every parishioner and every school family to make on final gift to help us finish our Capital campaign. Thanks to the generosity of the Anderson Family Foundation, your pledge will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

We have a number of unique naming opportunities available. If you would like to discuss a special way to honor your family or a loved one, please do not hesitate to contact me at 602-279-9547 or daniel.sullivan@sfxsj.org to discuss these exciting opportunities.

With just $2.9 million remaining to complete our Capital Campaign, every dollar counts, and I hope I can count on you now!

Thank you for your continued generosity and support.

God Bless,
Rev. Daniel J. Sullivan, S.J., Pastor
