In Harmony Small Things Grow


Join us in our mission to serve the poor and marginalized.


lives centered on the example of Jesus in seeking out and working with the poor and marginalized



in harmony small things grow.

Following the path of our Founder, we see ourselves as called to live ordinary lives that give witness to God’s unconditional love. As Ryken’s spiritual conversion was the sense of his being “put in his place” by God, we too believe that the Xaverian calling is a way of being put in our place in the world, a place of humility and simplicity, from which we receive the grace to turn toward God, fall in love with God, and put ourselves in God’s service as followers of Jesus Christ.
