St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church

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.
