Welcome to the Basilica of St. Francis Xavier! Our church has been a Catholic treasure among the cornfields of Iowa for over 125 years, welcoming visitors to an experience of both beauty and prayer. We invite you to come and visit, to pray, to join us at Mass, and to appreciate with us the Catholic heritage we love and celebrate. To the greater glory and honor of God!
You are part of a building that has the apostles and prophets for its foundation and Christ Jesus himself for its cornerstone . . . And you too, in him, are built into a house where God lives, in the Spirit (Eph. 2:19-22).
