St Francis Xavier & St Clare

Catholic Parish of Greater Box Hill | In the Franciscan tradition

Welcome! 

 
Welcome to the Parish of St Francis Xavier and St Clare!  Whether you are new to our parish, a current parishioner, interested in becoming Catholic or seeking to return to the practice of your faith, we extend to you a warm welcome.

Our parish seeks to be a hospitable community that praises our God in worship, shares with all what we celebrate in the Eucharist, and is inspired by the Holy Spirit to intentionally reach out and support others. We hope you can join us.
We are currently updating our website. We are grateful for your patience as we make adjustments.
