Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Thank you for visiting our website and I hope that you will get a sense of the identity and mission of our parish community. St. Francis Xavier Parish, administered by the Jesuit Fathers of the California Province, has been in existence for more than 80 years and is located in the center of metropolitan Phoenix. At its founding, the parish was outside the city limits. Our beautiful church building was opened in 1959 and seats 1,500 people. More than 6,000 households are registered in the parish and our elementary school has 600 young boys and girls being educated in the Jesuit tradition. The parish is vibrant with 58 ministries supported by paid staff and numerous, generous volunteers. Evangelization, education, the celebration of the Sacraments, the promotion of justice and service, are of primary concern for us as we strive to live and spread the Gospel. The principles of Ignatian spirituality guide our efforts to bring people closer to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Sincerely yours in Christ, Rev. Daniel J. Sullivan, S.J. Pastor

more about the Catholic


R.C.I.A. Inquiry:

The Rite of Christian Initiation of  Adults is not a class or series of  programs, but rather, it’s a process  that allows the participants the  opportunity to explore the Catholic  faith gradually through sharing,  formal teaching, liturgical  celebrations, prayer, and fellowship.  Those interested in learning more  about Jesus Christ and the teaching  of the Catholic Church, without any  pressure or commitment, are  encouraged to seek answers.  There will be an Open  House/Information night on  Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at 6:30pm  in the Ignatian Spirituality Center. We will explain the  entire process and provide you with  a calendar for the year. This  will also be a chance for you to ask  any questions you may have about  joining the Catholic Church. The Inquiry Process starts on  Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 6:30pm  in the Ignatian Spirituality Center.  You do not need to bring anything  with you (except an open mind and  heart); we will provide all that you  need including Bibles and Catechisms  of the Catholic Church. Once again, thank you for  considering St. Francis Xavier’s RCIA  process. We sincerely hope the  experience will be one that will last  a lifetime. We look forward to  serving you. For more information, please contact  Kimberly Rodriguez at 602-212-4516  or
