MISSION STATEMENT
Originally founded in 1874 as St. Patrick’s, St. Francis Xavier Parish in 1903 embraced all immigrant people by following the missionary zeal of our patron. In response to this call, we now embrace English, Brazilian, and Spanish speaking Roman Catholics and due to the respect of our heritage, include a Tridentine Mass. In our love and zeal as disciples of the Lord, we strive to remain true to our Holy Roman Catholic Faith. We witness to this Faith: by our celebration of the Sacraments, by our continual formation in the teachings of the Church, and by striving always to serve the needs of the community in Hyannis, especially the poor.

First Week of Advent
A light shines in the darkness
In this first week of Advent, the church highlights the theme of hope. We remember that the “people who walk in darkness will see a great light.” Good news at this time of long nights as we are reeling mentally, physically, financially, emotionally from the coronavirus pandemic and find it hard to cope. But today is also World AIDS Day, a time to remember another virus-borne pandemic that has killed more than 30 million worldwide, calling to mind the inspiring way our world can come together at its best to respond to terrible diseases. Pray for an increase in hope and healing today.
Today's readings: Isaiah 11:1-10; Luke 10:21-24 (176). “There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain."
Hope
