St. Francis Xavier Feast Day Mass

Invitation to St. Francis Xavier Feast Day Mass
Monday December 3 at 8:35am

The school Mass next week will be on Monday, December 3rd at 8:35 am for the Feast of St. Francis Xavier.   We encourage as many parents and family members as possible to attend this parish and school celebration. It is a great opportunity to connect both of our parishes and our school as together we celebrate one of our patrons.

The parish is named St. Francis Xavier because the first people to bring Christianity to North America were Jesuit priests who had a devotion to St. Francis Xavier. The first Mass celebrated in the state of Wisconsin was celebrated on December 3, 1669, the Feast of St. Francis Xavier, by Fr. Claude Allouez, SJ.

Note: December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, is the Patronal Feast of St. Mary Parish. Masses for this Holy Day of obligation will be celebrated:


Friday December 7

5:30 pm at St. Francis Xavier

7:00 pm at St. Mary


Saturday December 8

7:30 am at St. Francis Xavier

9:00 am at St. Mary

Happy Thanksgiving

A Note From Principal Mares – RURN Ticket Sales

Dear Parents,

I wanted to thank those of you who have bought or sold Raffle tickets for Rise Up Raiders Night! In doing this, you have supported our school’s efforts by:

  • Earning 2 entries into RURN – we hope to see you there!

  • Making it possible for us to have ONE big fundraiser per year, instead of working year-round to raise money.

  • Helping to keep our tuition costs reasonably low compared to other similar schools around the country.

  • supporting our wonderful teachers and staff.

  • Ensuring our building, grounds, curriculum, materials, and supplies are up-to-date and well-maintained.

  • Providing a secure future for Notre Dame of De Pere.

So far this year we have sold 379 out of the 500 needed. We are still hoping to reach our goal with your help. If you have not sold raffle tickets, please do so by tomorrow morning. If you need more please contact Tricia Adams and she can get them to you.

If all 500 tickets are sold by 11:00am tomorrow, all Notre Dame of De Pere students will have NO HOMEWORK this weekend!!


Thank you for your help, and God Bless!!

Molly Mares
Principal, Notre Dame of De Pere
