Through the Book of the Innocents we hold in precious memory the lives of our young children who have died from miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, SIDS, sickness, disease or accident. Although they are no longer with us on earth, we rejoice in the way in which their lives have blessed our lives, and we look forward with hope to being reunited with them in the world to come. The Book of the Innocents acknowledges their continued place both in their natural family and in the parish family.
Our Catholic Community of St. Francis Xavier Book of the Innocents can be found on the north wall of our Chapel in a pine and glass case. Please visit to record the names of your loved ones along with some brief remarks, if desired. Please also pray for the families of those named. The Book of the Innocents was provided by the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese.
|The Gospel of Life Committee sponsors a "Baby Shower For Jesus" once a year - it usually corresponds with the annual national March For Life on Washington, D.C. in January. The "baby shower" is a marvelous way to include the younger children of the parish in a prolife activity. The gifts that the children bring to the parish are new baby items to include diapers, baby formula, baby clothes, toys etc. Gift cards from neighborhood food stores are a welcome addition. All of the proceeds are donated to the Pregnancy Center North on York Road. Cake is served to the children after the last Mass of the Sunday designated. We are blessed to have such a generous response to this event every year!|

January 22nd of each year, a group from the Catholic Community of St. Francis Xavier participates in the National March for Life in Washington DC. This event is held every year on the anniversary of the infamous 1973 Row vs. Wade Decision, legalizing abortion.
The day usually starts with Mass at CCSFX at 9:30 AM followed by a Continental breakfast. After Mass and breakfast, we boarded the bus for the trip to Washington DC. An EWTN simulcast of the pre-March For Life Rally is made available to those who want to stay in the comfort their Buses before the March.
The March begins at the end of a Rally on the Mall in which a number of pro-life speakers, including members of congress and senators address the gathering regarding the unborn and those life and dignity are threatened under current government policy. Once the Rally completed the participants march from the Mall to the steps of the Supreme Court. The March lasts about 45 minutes. There are additional speakers, and live music at the Court. Parishes in the area help with logistics and provided refreshments to the marcher on their way back to their buses. We usually return to the Church around 5:30PM.
We gather twice a year for prayerful presence outside the Hillcrest abortion facility.
This is part of the national campaign, 40 Days for Life. We typically work woth the Respect Life Committee of the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Towson Maryland
