St. Francis Xaiver

St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church has been a beacon of faith, hope and love, living the gospel of Jesus since 1885 in Merrill, WI. Through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, the mission of our multi-generational parish is to grow and learn in the traditions of the Catholic Church through sacraments, liturgy, youth ministry, our Catholic school, and Eucharistic Adoration.


A seven-week experience that invites guests to hear the Good News and personally encounter Jesus Christ. Begins September 2020.
