St. Francis Xavier Parish is honored to be affiliated with our sister parish, Santa Rita de Casia which is located outside Cartagena in the beautiful country of Colombia. This vibrant, Jesuit parish serves a vast area including two missions. Over the years, a number of St. Francis Xavier parishioners have made trips to Santa Rita in order to support our sister parish and to learn from the people of Colombia. Linda and Larry McKay have gone to Colombia on a number of occasions and have taught the Spiritual Exercises and English classes to parishioners. Recently a mission trip from St. Francis Xavier included a number of parishioners, students, and Fr. Joseph Carver, S.J. Learn the latest news from Santa Rita by reading this recent letter from Linda and Larry McKay.
From time to time we also support Santa Rita de Casia financially. Through our Lenten Projects or through direct appeals we will periodically call upon the parishioners of St. Francis Xavier to help with our efforts to support Santa Rita.
