Winter Weather Mass Policies
If the East De Pere School District closes school for a snow day, there will be no Mass at St. Mary or St. Francis Xavier that morning. If school has a late start, the 7:30am Mass will more than likely remain as scheduled, but the School Mass will be delayed the same time as the school is delayed (for example, if there is a 2-hour school delay, Mass will also have a 2-hour delay). Please use your best judgement when driving and walking outside during inclement weather.
Cenacles of Life Rosary Prayer Group
Pray weekly with the Cenacles of Life prayer group, for the beauty and dignity of human life, Mondays at St. Francis Xavier in the church, 6:00-7:00am or 6:00-7:00pm. Please contact Julie Deprey with any questions at 660-7827.
