Established in 2007 by a group of dedicated parent volunteers, our all-school Service Program exemplifies who we are as a school.  Throughout the school year, each grade has a service theme on which to focus its PRAYER, EDUCATION, ACTION and REFLECTION.  Students are engaged with people and causes throughout the community to allow our them to fully understand the meaning of service.  Not only strengthening the community and helping those in need, this program empowers our students to see the change they can affect. 

Guided by the seven principles of Catholic Social Teaching, the themes are:  

PK4, K     Caring for God's Creations

Grade 1   Caring for Older Friends

Grade 2   Children’s Rights & Responsibilities

Grade 3     Poverty & Homelessness

Grade 4     Working to End Hunger

Grade 5     Veterans and Active Duty Service

Grade 6     Ability Awareness

Grade 7     Human and Civil Rights 

Grade 8     Social Justice

2020 - We did not let a pandemic stop us from safely
performing service to help our community and beyond.  

2019 - Almost 500 St. Francis Xavier School students &
over 260 Parents, Faculty & Staff have a positive impact
on the lives of thousands of people in Chicagoland and
around the world... in ONE day.
