Directions to get to Picnic Spot: Enter park at 9th Street, walk along path and cross the road/park loop and continue on the path just a short ways down hill, towards the ball fields. We will be on the left in the clearing before you reach the fields. Family and friends are invited to and come enjoy company of fellow parishioners in the tranquil setting of the park. Bring blankets, chairs, food you would like to share with others and plenty of water and sun block, also bats, balls, hoops,bubbles and guitars! Any questions, please email us.

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER LIBRARY: AT YOUR FINGERTIPS Here comes summer and an opportunity to relax and read a book! Please think of your parish library when you're preparing your stack of books for summer reading. We will have some suggested titles on the library table. Or, please just browse the shelves for something to catch your interest. Consider a personal retreat with one of the saints, an enhancement of prayer life, a call to social justice, or inspiration from a spiritual writer. We have it all at your fingertips. Please visit the library located by the choir loft steps for some spiritual reflection. May our Lord bless us all with a summer of spiritual refreshment.

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER HAWKS HAVE NAMES We have a pair of Hawks nesting in our church tower! We have named the parents Noah and Namaa. The babies are Park and Slope.

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. OR
2. Submit your prayer request through our email address: LAMP@stfxbrooklyn.org. A coordinator will assign a prayer partner for you who will pray for you and your intention for one month.
If you are interested in being a prayer partner yourself, please fill out a volunteer form available in the back of the church and leave it inside the LAMP box. Please know that our prayers will be with you.
