St. Francis Xavier Parish at 212 Center Street, Otisville, MI 48463-9706 US - Home
St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church is a small, but intimate parish in the north-east corner of Genesee County in Michigan. We are about 300 families. Being small, everyone seems to know each other and are also quite welcoming to visitors.
Where are you in your walk with Jesus? Has it been a while since you've been to church? Have you drifted away or for some reason felt alienated from the worshipping community? Do you consider yourself a disciple of Christ?
No matter what you circumstance in life, we want you to consider visiting us. Pope Francis recently said, "We must never be afraid to return to God, and God will celebrate. God is never tired of waiting for us. He is never tired of welcoming us home again. Are you ready to say 'yes' to Christ?"
Perhaps it is time to make a call to the parish and make an appointment to see our Pastoral Associate, Scott Fitzgerald (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). If you are not Catholic and you would like information to explore the possibilities of becoming Catholic, please, get in touch.
We would love to see you and welcome you back. Peace! -- Scott Fitzgerald
