ALTAR ROSARY SOCIETY

The Altar Rosary Society is a women’s group with members from St. Francis Xavier and St. Mary who provide for the needs of the altar and the upkeep of the church. The group meets on the first Friday of the month, September through May, at St. Francis Xavier to praise and honor the Blessed Virgin Mary and secure her patronage by the recitation of the Rosary. Rosary begins at 7:10am, followed by Mass at 7:30am. Members gather in the Fr. Dolski Parish Center following Mass for a light breakfast, short business meeting and a speaker. New members are always welcome!

Eucharistic Adoration

Spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament on the Second Tuesday of every month, any time from 8:00am-8:00pm at St. Francis Xavier. If you are willing to open yourself to our Lord, He will touch your heart. Come for a few minutes or make an hour-long commitment to be an honor guard for Jesus. Honor guards serve as a quiet, prayerful presence for the Blessed Sacrament.

FOCCUS FACILITATORS

Volunteer couples provide insight and guidance to couples who are planning to marry in our church by reviewing the results of a FOCCUS assessment that is completed separately by the bride and groom. FOCCUS identifies a broad range of important topics that can help couples understand the meaning of their union and learn communication and conflict resolution skills that will enhance their lifelong relationship. Training is provided by the Diocese of Green Bay and paid for by the parish.

RESPECT LIFE

Those with an interest in pro-life activities can participate in 40 Days for Life Vigils and/or help with the Mother’s Day Rose Sale. Volunteers work in cooperation with national organizations to form the ministry for our parish.
