We are the people of St. Francis Xavier Church, a Roman Catholic Community, serving Otisville and the surrounding rural areas in the northeast corner of the Lansing Diocese.
We strive to be open to the Holy Spirit in promoting Christian unity, peace and friendship.
We proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ by growing in faith and by serving the spiritual and corporal needs of our brothers and sisters.
Next Sunday, Pentecost Sunday, we will celebrate our first public Mass here at St. Francis. All are invited, however, we are only allowed 25% of our seating capacity. This comes to 85 people. So first come, first served; once we reach this number the rest will be turned away.
Also, a mask is required and must be worn while at Mass. Its encouraged to leave children 7 and under home. Mainly because they don't understand the social distancing very well. Dispensation for going to Mass still goes thru July 31st. Finally, please keep the six feet distance between others and follow the instructions given before Mass.
We hope you will come join us and be able to once again receive Jesus in the Holy Eucharist on the birthday of our Catholic Church. Mass will be at its usual time, 10:00 a.m. on May 31st.
Please read through the guidelines.
All Parish activities including Masses, are cancelled until at least June 1st due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. We will still celebrate funeral Masses for the deceased and their immediate family only. If you need to call concerning a funeral, please dial 810-686-9861 and then extension 600 to reach Father Ken. Let us pray for one another during this current situation. May our Blessed Mother intercede for us to be safe from this virus and, for those what have contracted it, may be led to great healing. Thank you for your continued support and patience during this national crisis.
