Church Rebuilding
St. Francis Xavier Church was damaged during the earthquake and aftershocks of January, 2010.
The church needed major repairs before it could be used again. Mass was being held under tarps in the school yard. Fr. Nexcene reported that despite the lack of a church building, the faithful are still gathering to worship. Over 2000 people participated in their Stations of the Cross during Holy Week and 1000 people participated in a 3 day retreat at the beginning of Holy Week.
