We are a diverse Christ-centered community reaching out to one another in love, service, kindness, and understanding. We foster unity through education and evangelization. We serve the poor and the needs of our sister parish. We celebrate the life of Christ through the Eucharist, Scripture, and the Sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church.

Faith Formation Classes are each Wednesday at each parish.

6:30 pm at Saint John and Sacred Heart for all ages and grades.

6:00pm at Saint Francis Xavier, Belmond for grades K-5, and 7:30 pm for grades 6th -12th





Online giving offers our parish a stable, sustainable future.  We know that you share in this vision and we’re excited about giving our parishioners many ways to participate in our growth as a parish family.
