How lovely are your altars, Lord,
upon the Cresson mount
The Gospel preached,
the waters poured
from Church’s saving fount.

How lovely too your sacred courts
where grace and mercy flow
With absolution’s pardon, peace
and freedom here below.

How beautiful, where Sacred Host
is raised aloft on high
And priestly hands lift chalice too
To meet the Cresson sky.

How lovely is your house O Lord,
your presence undeserved,
How beautiful upon the heights
the mercies of the Lord!


       The mission of Saint Francis Xavier Church, Cresson, Pennsylvania, is to further the Kingdom of God by following Christ by building up the Christian community within the mystical body of Christ through worship, prayer, education, service, and example to enable the faith community to live out the Word of God in association with the Bishop of the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese and the universal Church.

"This means that you are stranger and aliens no longer.  No, you are fellow citizens of the saints and members of the household of God."            Ephesians 2, 19


             We invite you to visit us, attend our services, and to become active in our parish as a choir member, lector, Eucharistic minister, altar server, or join in many of our other activities.
