Home of the Xaverians in Preston

This is the website of the Xaverian Mission Spirituality Centre in Preston.  If you were looking to find out about the Xaverian presence in the UK then you can find the Provincial website for the Xaverians here.

The Xaverian dream is that of making the world a single family.

Inspired by St. Guido Conforti and St. Francis Xavier, we, Xaverian Missionaries, serve to keep the local Church aware of, engaged with and connected to the missionary mandate of the universal Church, principally by witnessing Jesus to those who have yet to know Him.

Covid-19 Essential Reading

We are in lockdown.  This tells you what you may and may not do for the sake of the community and yourself.

The Centre remains all but closed down and it remains unclear when and how we will reopen.  In the meantime there are still things we can all do.

  1. Comply with the current Covid-19 guidance from the NHS.
  2. Use the NHS Covid-19 app
  3. Report daily using the Covid Symptom Study app

Our Government is facing a massive challenge.  There will be all kinds of issues and details that they cannot possibly cover.  They can only paint with a broad brush and trust us individually to do the right things for the benefit of our country, our local community and our family.

The Xaverian dream is that of making the world a single family.
