  • I attended 6th thru 8th grade at St. Francis Xavier. I graduated from there in 2003. That was the best school and I always think about the fun times I had there. I even met my best friend there. St. Francis is the best.

  • I'll never forget Sr. Kathleen Marie jump roping with us first grade girls on the playground one day. Although the class was huge, we did receive a good education at St. Francis. When I moved to Maryland in sixth grade with my family, the public school education didn't compare.

  • I attended 1st and 2nd grades at this school in 1961 and 1962 and have the fondest memories of the Sisters who taught me. The Church had a sense of purity and goodness that I will never forget.
