And be thankful
(Colossians 3:15).

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. 

A quick overview of upcoming happenings and opportunities!

Christmas Flower Memorials are due by Tuesday, December 12th and will published in the bulletin of December 24th.  What a great way to remember or honor your loved ones.  Just click above to download the Christmas Flower Memorial Form. 

Sharing Tree

Let us share the love and joy of Christ by placing gifts beneath our Sharing Tree. Select an ornament or several from the tree, purchase the items and place them under the tree, unwrapped.
Gifts will be delivered December 17th.

First Wednesday Dinners


St. Francis Xavier Catholic Parish hosts a monthly First Wednesday Dinner. The meal and fellowship are absolutely without fee and we welcome all parishioners and visitors. We do ask that you register so that we'll have plenty and, if you'd like to make a donation, please do. Enjoy the meal and fellowship as Christ said, love others as we love ourselves. Please click image to make your reservation!
