Welcome to St. Francis Xavier (College) Church!
We are the Jesuit parish in the heart of St. Louis.
With the start of Lent, many of us are considering what we can give up or take on this season. The Racism & Reconciliation committee of the College Church invites you to participate in a Lenten Racial Justice Journey. With the recent release of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ pastoral letter on racism, Open Wide our Hearts, now is the perfect time to make a Lenten commitment to engaging with racial justice in a new way. Consider incorporating the reading/listening/viewing of the daily materials into your prayer of the Examen. A variety of materials are offered for you to choose those that best guide your path.

Praying with Women of the World
We live in a world in which the challenges of women remain particularly startling. We are excited to announce that we have found a wonderful prayer resource for walking in solidarity with the suffering women of our world. This setting of the Stations of the Cross have been written to awaken us to more prayerfully consider and pray for their suffering in our midst. We will gather to pray “The Way of the Cross With the Women of the World” twice during Lent.
