Church Cleaning

March cleaners: Cynthia Rogers, Angela Myers 

We are still needing a few more volunteers (individuals, families or church groups) to help be part of a cleaning team.  You would clean two (2) times a month and each time would take about 1 hour total.  Please prayerfully consider if this would be something you could do as stewardship for our parish and your 'giving back' to God. 

If you would like to be a cleaning partner in 2018, please contact Fr. Quentin or the office directly.  Thank you!!

History of St. Francis Xavier Parish

The history of Catholics in Burlington dates back to 1859, it was in the early months of 1871, that about ten families from in and around Burlington were organized into a parish. Although our first parishioners were very poor, they did not waste any time in building the first church. Through their hard work and generosity, the cornerstone for the 35 x 40 feet wood church was laid in June of 1871. It was located on 3rd Street, three blocks north of the present church.

By the year 1899, the parish had grown to 35 families and a new church building was contemplated to meet the needs of a larger membership. Once again, despite the poverty of the people, their dedication and financial commitment saw the laying of the cornerstone of the present church on August 22, 1901. One year later, on August 12, 1902, the present church building was dedicated to the Lord with a Solemn High Mass followed by a festive dinner celebration.

The parish hall was completed and dedicated on May 14, 2006.

The church basement was remodeled for High School CCD and the Youth Group in September 2010.
