St. Francis Xavier Parish, 220 Michigan St., beginning at 10:00am. (9:30am Registration). Deep in our humanness is an ache for fullness that God alone can satisfy. Developing our relationship with God is so important and enriching, but how does one begin? How can we grow? St. Francis Xavier Parish is offering a full day prayer retreat with Dr. Carol Masuga to help deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ. Please contact Julie Deprey with any questions at 660-7827.

Winter Weather Policy for Religious Formation
Parents are primary in determining whether their child should attend class or not because of the snow or cold. We will honor that decision. We will not have classes if the DePere School District closes school for the day because of bad weather.
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.
Calendar of Religious Formation Events:
We, the people of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Parish in De Pere, Wisconsin, united with the Diocesan Church of Green Bay and the universal Roman Catholic Church are a Eucharistic Community committed to worship, to education, to social service and to sharing our time, talent and our treasure.
