IN NEED OF SOME PRAYERS? St. Francis Xavier is happy to announce LaMP: Loving and Merciful Prayers. A Support Ministry, beginning now in our parish. You can request prayers for your private intentions from an anonymous prayer partner by two different methods: 1. Look for our prayer request forms in the back of the church. Place your request in the marked box.
