St. Francis Xavier Annual Feast


To honor our patron, St. Francis Xavier, our parish community offers one of the largest Portuguese feasts in Rhode Island, including

  • the Triduum of 3 Masses before the feast

  • Mass at 5:45 on Saturday evening of the feast, followed by procession

  • Solemn Mass at 11:30 on Sunday morning followed by a large procession

  • In our church parking lot, we invite you to taste our delicious Portuguese food and malassadas, enjoy live music, dancing, and a variety of games and activities for people of all ages.

The Feast is always held every year in June, typically around Father’s Day Weekend.

For more information and specific dates for 2019, see the parish bulletin and the “Upcoming Events” page on our parish website.
