Welcome and Information

Greetings and welcome to Saint Francis Xavier Parish,

My name is Deb Johnson. Since 2005, I have had the amazing good fortune to be director of religious education at Saint Francis Xavier.

I am a Montana native, growing up in Butte, attending Carroll College in Helena, and working in Missoula for 26 years as a dental hygienist. My journey took an unexpected turn. I was graced with a ministry opportunity here at Saint Francis Xavier. God does work in mysterious ways. Don’t you just love those unexpected blessings?

“We are shaped and fashioned by what we love, by who and what we call home”.  My goal here at Saint Francis Xavier is to have every person that enters our doors feel that they have come home, that they are welcome, and that they are loved.

If you have questions regarding religious education, youth group, sacramental preparation for Reconciliation, 1st Eucharist, Confirmation, and RCIA please contact me at 406.541.6040 or e-mail me at

God bless you on your journey & welcome home!
