"When we realize that God is in love with our smallness, that he made himself small in
order to better encounter us, we cannot help but open our hearts to him ..."

-- Pope Francis, Vatican City, December 24, 2014

The Battle of Gettysburg & St. Francis Xavier Church

"For God and Country"   July 1-3, 1863

For three sultry days in July 1863, two armies collided in the fields and orchards and woods around Gettysburg in a violent struggle to decide the fate of our country. Our Church was one of the first buildings to open its doors to the wounded.    See More
