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!
