Bienvenidos! Para Español

Our faith community and I, Fr. Francis are delighted that you and your family have chosen Saint Francis Xavier Parish as your place for worship. Saint Francis Xavier, S.J. (Society of Jesus) showed a great zeal for missionary work, and just as him we strive to follow on the footsteps of such a great preacher and evangelizer for the Malaysians.

We welcome you as Christ! Whether you are a member or a visitor, we pray that you find Christ among our brothers and sisters in the faith and trust that the word of God would stir your heart to actively listen and be prompted to action for the greater glory of God.  

OUR MISSION

As members of St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, we are a multicultural community guided by the Holy Spirit and the Catholic Church. Our family of faith leads a Christ-centered life to enrich our world through sacrament, worship, service, and hospitality.

   Easter - The Resurrection of the Lord

On Easter Sunday we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and his victory over sin and death. We celebrate that Christ is Alive! The Resurrection of Jesus gives us hope for our own share in His Resurrection. It is the singular event which proves that those who trust in God and accept Christ will be raised from the dead. Christ is Risen, Alleluia, Alleluia! (USCCB)

The 50 days of the Easter season, from Easter Sunday to Pentecost are celebrated in joy and exultation as one feast day; indeed as one Sunday. The first eight days of the Easter season (counting both Easter Sunday and Divine Mercy Sunday), make up the octave and are celebrated as Solemnities of the Lord. The days of the Easter octave form the “early hours” of this great day with accounts of the Lord who rose early in the morning, and the early preaching of the disciples who were witnesses to his resurrection. (Ordo)

Today, this extended season gives us time to rejoice and experience what it means when we say Christ is risen. It’s the season when we remember our baptisms and how, through this sacrament, we are “incorporated into Christ’s mighty acts of salvation.” As “Easter people,” we celebrate and ponder the birth of the Church and gifts of the Spirit (Pentecost), and how we are to live as faithful disciples of Christ. (USCCB)
