Please visit our new website at www.xaviermission.org for all information regarding Xavier Mission and our programs, projects, volunteering, and donating.
Xavier Mission is the new 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was born from the outreach programs of the Church of St. Francis Xavier. The roots of social justice at Xavier date back to early Jesuit outreach efforts to mid-19th century immigrants on New York’s Lower East Side. In the early 1980s during the recession, concerned parishioners of the Church began providing food and shelter in response to the plight of their fellow New Yorkers. Today, more than a quarter of a century later, our five programs are now operating collectively as Xavier Mission Inc., a multi-service community outreach organization housed at the Church of St. Francis Xavier.
Please see below for the announcement of Xavier Mission’s incorporation as a non-profit organization.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we’d like to take a moment to stop and recognize all those who have made our work possible this year. For your continuing time, talent, treasure, prayers and support, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Our Giving Trees are back up and are full of tags waiting to be brought home by you! On the trees are tags representing items needed by the All Saints Clothing Room as they work hard to take care of our homeless guests during the winter months.
Mark your calendars because on February 28, 2015, Xavier Mission will be hosting our second annual Dinner-Dance, with this year’s theme “A Night In Paris”!
We Can’t Baste Our Turkey Without You!!
And not just our turkey, but our BBQ chicken, our baked seasoned fish, and our homestyle pork chops as well! It’s time once again for “What-The-Heck-Is-That-Thing-In-The-Picture??”, otherwise known as the “Our Turkey Thanksgiving Meal Fund”!
