Ever sit in mass and wonder, what am I getting from this? Well, Father Carver and Father Perry never fail to connect me to the readings and gospel. Thanks to them I have new faith in my church. The Jesuit influence is evident and appreciated.

The ceiling paintings at St Francis Xavier church are stunning. The detail is superb. Well worth taking 15 minutes and sitting in a pew and looking at the paintings. Free to park outside.

We came by looking for a place to pray during the day. Beautiful church and it was open for all. Very peaceful place. We liked it so much we came back on Sunday for Mass. Good crowd that was very welcoming.

Decided to visit St. Francis Xavier Church while in Missoula, MT. This is awe inspiring with all the religious art. A peaceful place to be quiet, reflect and pray. Then sit back and take in all the incredible frescos on the walls and ceiling.
