Mass & Confession Times

We, the Catholic faith community of St. Francis Xavier, inspired by the Holy Spirit, commit ourselves to an ever-deepening personal relationship with Jesus Christ that expresses itself in prayer, worship and mission. We are guided by Ignatian principles in living a faith that does justice through our baptismal call to be Christ for others.

Reconciliation Schedule

Saturday 3:00-5:00pm

St. Francis Xavier Catholic Faith Community is a parish staffed by the Jesuits and offers the sacrament of Reconciliation every Saturday from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. There are usually two priests available. No confessions after 5:00pm. All other times by appointment with priest on duty for registered parishioners only. As Jesuits, we find that many people come to a Jesuit parish to avail themselves of the sacrament of Reconciliation. Each person who approaches the priest is treated kindly and with dignity and respect, and the Jesuit offers spiritual advice and counsel to the penitent within the tradition and discernment of spirits found in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. The person approaching the priest has the option of anonymity or speaking face to face with the priest.

See a video produced by the National Life Teen Program about the Sacrament of Reconciliation that was filmed in our Church.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

O come let us adore Him! Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is a great tradition of our church where one can sit in the presence of the Lord and offer silent prayers.

We offer Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the first Friday of the month, immediately following the 6:15am daily Mass. The Mass is held in our church building, followed by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in our Ignatian Chapel. Adoration ends before our daily 12:10pm daily Mass.

Our Youth programs also incorporate Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from time to time, especially on retreats.
