St. Francis Xavier is a vibrant Catholic church in Birmingham, Alabama. We're large enough to offer an array of parish ministries 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. Thank you for taking the time to come learn about our church!

Guidelines that must be followed are:
Masks must be worn
We must stay six feet apart (unless you are a family unit)
Some pews have been roped off, please do not remove the ropes
NO physical exchange of the sign of peace
Communion will be received ONLY on the hand, not on the tongue
Face masks must be lowered before receiving Holy Communion. If you wear gloves they must be removed to receive Communion
Please exit the church beginning with the back pews, followed by the middle and finally the front pews. DO NOT congregate in the vestibule or nave of the church
If you do not feel comfortable coming to Mass, be at peace and know that we are praying for you and your families. The Bishop's dispensation from attendance at Mass is still in effect.
