St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School

Celebrating Faith

We are learning to follow in the footsteps of Jesus with our friends, family and parish.

At St Francis, we celebrate Our Faith in many different ways. Look at some of the special events that take place during our school year that have a particular focus or importance to our Catholic Faith.

Blessing of the Advent Wreaths - 3rd December 2018

Parents of St. Francis Xavier made an Advent Wreath for each class and one for the hall. During Advent the candles will be lit in each class as part of the children's preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus. The wreaths were blessed by Fr Kieran in a separate celebration. Thank you Fr Kieran!
