What We Do
The Church of St. Francis Xavier (New York) is one of 66 Jesuit parishes in the United States.

Parish and Pastoral Ministries

Among their many ministries, Jesuit priests and brothers serve the faithful in parish communities. Jesuits also serve as chaplains in hospitals and the military, helping all to grow in their faith as companions of Jesus.

Jesuit parishes are Eucharist-centered, spirit-filled places where people choose to form parish community and to experience spiritual growth through life-giving liturgies in a worship space of beauty and reverence. The long history of spiritual leadership from the Society of Jesus challenges these parishes with the Gospel values of love, compassion and social justice.

There are 66 Jesuit parishes in the United States. Here is a full list of these parish communities across the United States.
