Let's face it. The middle school years can be some of the most challenging of our life. Middle schoolers often struggle to find their place in school, in the family, and in the world. At St. Francis Xavier, we want all our middle school students to know that they have a place here in our parish. We want all our middle schoolers to know that not only is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ possible, but that it must be a vital part of lives - one that will utterly transform the way we think, act, and live. We are created to know, to love, and to serve God in this life, and be happy with Him in the next. This is the truth we want to impress upon our youth!
