“Just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful Masses that are celebrated at St. Francis.  It’s such a treat for us to attend when we’re in town visiting our daughter.  Your Mass is so beautiful, quiet, reverent…what a treat!”  ~ Visitor

“Dear St. Francis Xavier Parish, Thank you so much for the scholarship to Legendary Lodge.  It means so much to me and I am very thankful you could help out.  I really appreciated the funds and I’m extremely excited to go this summer!” ~ Grateful Summer Camper

“Thank you so much for being a place I can go to refresh my soul every Sunday.  Your message of love and acceptance inspires me to show more love in the world too.  This church and the people in it have become my refuge. Thank you!” ~ Parishioner

“To the Congregation of St. Francis Xavier Church:  I have been experiencing hardships for the last two years due to health issues.  This past month I had to have some work done on the brakes of my van (which I was living in).  I was unable to come up with the money for the repairs.  I contacted Pam at your church and she provided me with part of the funds needed to repair my brakes.  Words cannot adequately express the heartfelt thanks and gratitude that I fell for this assistance!  I believe this is what being Christ-like means.  Administering help to those in need is the example He set for us.  Thank you again!”  ~ A Friend in Need

“Fr. Joseph, Please accept my sincere thanks for all your work, expertise, faith and passion that made the 8th grade retreat ‘the best ever!’  I know your time is truly maxed out, and we so appreciate working with you!”  ~ Missoula Catholic Schools Administrator

“The 125th Celebration was an outstanding event that was enjoyed by all.  It was well planned, well thought out, and delivered everything that I think you and your committee intended it to do. We all like to think that we belong and this was certainly one way of doing it.”  ~ Parishioner

“This Thanksgiving I will remember all the Jesuits of St. Francis Xavier in my prayers.  As a parish we are lucky to have top notch, excellent priests at the helm.  You complement each other in all sorts of ways!  Thank you for everything!” ~ Parishioner

“Dear Father Carver, Thank you so much for letting us explore your beautiful church.  I’m really glad we got to learn about your church and I’m thankful you could inform us so well.  Thanks again for your time for informing us about your religion” ~ Student Visitor

“Dear Father Carver, thank you for showing us your very beautiful church.  The church had many beautiful paintings and ornate sculptures.  The organ was one of my personal favorites.  It was amazing to see how connected all the art and history was.  It was cool to think that the ceiling was a window to heaven.  You were very welcoming and taught us a lot.”  ~ Student Visitor

“You have been able to transform this program into something that engages and educates our children, while providing the right guidance and ‘asks’ to the parents.  You use time wisely and make it enjoyable.  I could not be more pleased with the 1st Communion Program.  I wanted to share with you something I found in my daughter’s room.  She dabbles in guitar playing and song writing with her Dad.  These are the lyrics to the latest song she wrote on her own.  The first sentence is tricky, it goes… “Be still there is a man that will guide you and me…” ️ So for a second grader to go into her room and write this on her own, I’d say that’s pretty cool.  Thanks for everything!~ Parent with daughter in First Eucharist Program
