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.

Come pray at the Our Lady of Fatima Shrine at Saint Francis Xavier

As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady of Fatima Pope Francis has declared this to be a Marian Year and asks that on the 13th day of any month between May 13, 2017 and October 13, 2018 that you make a pilgrimage to the shrine of Fatima. Please click here for information on how to obtain a plenary indulgence for the 100th Fatima Anniversary.

O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Queen of the most holy Rosary, you were pleased to appear to the children of Fatima and reveal a glorious message. We implore you, inspire in our hearts a fervent love for the recitation of the Rosary. By meditating on the mysteries of the redemption that are recalled therein may we obtain the graces and virtues that we ask, through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer.

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.
