St. Francis Xavier is a vibrant Catholic church in Birmingham, Alabama. We're large enough to offer robust religious education programs as well as an excellent elementary school, and an array of parish missions and activities for all ages and interests, and we're small enough to get to know one another as a warm community working together to fulfill Christ's Word.

Please get to know us through our website, join us for Mass, consider becoming active in one of our various ministries,and plan to attend our First Wednesday Dinners. The schedule will be posted in August for suppers starting in September.

St. Francis Xavier is a partner in an exciting 24/7 on-line web-based digital formation series called FORMED, produced by the Augustine Institute and Ignatius Press.

This series is designed to help adults grow in their faith at all levels - how we think, how we pray, and how we live. Better yet, access is FREE to all St. Francis Xavier parishioners and their families anywhere, anytime on computers, tablets or phones.
