CHILDREN'S FAITH FORMATION Our Faith Formation Programs for children and teens are based on the belief that God calls us "to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with our God." Our main goal is to help the children know how much God loves them, to help them develop a strong personal relationship with Jesus and enable them to discover the richness of our Catholic faith.

Our Faith Formation Programs for children and teens are looking for volunteers. Sharing your love of God and your faith with the young people of our parish can be a very rewarding experience. If you would like to help as a catechist, an assistant, a substitute or in some other way or if you would like to simply discuss ways you can be involved, email Sister Helene or call at 718-857-2903. Please consider joining this meaningful ministry. We need you.

  • Classes for grade 7 and up begin on Friday, September 23rd.
  • Classes for grades K through 6 begin on Saturday, September 24th.
If your child is not yet registered, contact Sister Helene as soon as possible.

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS RCIA If you or someone you know is interested in finding out more about the Catholic faith or receiving the Sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist and/or Confirmation, we'd love to talk with you about the RCIA process. This process provides an opportunity to go on a spiritual journey with other adults seeking to deepen their relationship with God and begin or renew their commitment to God through full membership in the Catholic Church. The program will begin in a few weeks. For more information, contact Sister Helene.

ST VINCENT DE PAUL PANTRY NEEDS DONATIONS Can you please help us? The St. Vincent de Paul at St. Francis Xavier cupboard is low on food. We are in need of some canned vegetables, tuna, macaroni and cheese, oatmeal, peanut butter and jelly, and instant coffee. Please bring donations to the rectory or to mass on Sundays.

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.
