St. Francis Xavier Parish
Welcome to St. Francis Xavier Parish
347 South Street, Hyannis, MA - 02601 - Office: 21 Cross Street, Hyannis, MA 02601
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.
SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM: Parents who are registered Parishioners should call the Parish Office to make arrangements. Baptismal preparation is required if this is your first child being baptized at St. Francis or it has been 2 years since your last class. Baptisms are usually held the First Saturday of each month at NOON. But there is a certain amount of flexibility, which you can work out with the Deacon or Priest who is celebrating.
INITIATION OF ADULTS: Adults expressing an interest in becoming Catholic are invited to search through our 14 month formation process. For more information, please call the Parish Office.

When the Barnstable School Department delays classes, the parish office will be closed for the day.
If classes are 'cancelled', the Parish Office, Religious Education classes and other parish events or gatherings are also cancelled. Masses will be held as scheduled. Please check with civil authority (i.e. state of emergency) and use your discretion and good judgment about whether you may safely attend Mass. Do not put yourselves, or others, in danger.
Also keep in mind that our plow crews will need access to the parking lot, so please try not to impede their work, by driving where they are working. Thank you for your courtesy.
