The St. Francis Xavier Middle School Youth program (grades 6-8) provides a great opportunity for our youth to meet new friends, have fun, enjoy fellowship, participate in mission and service, and grow in their Catholic faith while growing closer to Christ and His Church. Our regular meetings are held on Mondays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on the playground or in the multi-purpose room (located across from the playground gates). Don't forget your mask, please. We'd love to have you and your friends join us as we strive for Christ together.

Please join us for the Advent Celebration on Tuesday, December 21. Thank you for your RSVP!

Recap of Christmas Lights Trip

We had such a great time looking at Christmas lights this week with our friends during youth group. We saw some beautiful decorations, and we are so grateful for the time we shared together. We were reminded to bring the light of Christ to others and to allow him to shine through us. May we always find joy in finding the light. Thank you so much for coming!

Continue the Conversation at Home:

  • How can you be a light to others?

  • What do you think it means to allow Jesus to shine through you?

  • When we face dark situations, what can we do to remember that the Light of the World is on our sides?

Thank you for your generosity and support in the Food for Our Journey service project! We were able to assemble almost 100 blessing bags for our neighbors in Birmingham who do not have homes. God bless you!

Featured FORMED Selection: Adventus- A Spiritual Pilgrimage
On behalf of the Augustine Institute, we are offering Adventus: A Spiritual Pilgrimage to everyone this Advent and Christmas Season. In light of the separation we face as communities, this special documentary allows Catholics all around the world to unite and make a spiritual pilgrimage to the Holy Land to see the places associated with Christ’s Birth. May this presentation allow us welcome Christ. Come, Lord, Jesus- we are waiting for you!
