St. Francis Xavier Catholic School 

"Educate them in the Christian Way of Life."

~St. Francis Xavier

Our beloved Noreen Neitz, mother, wife, daughter, friend, mentor, youth leader & Christian, was called to be with our Heavenly Father on July 10, 2013 after a tremendous fight with cancer.  As was Noreen’s way, even though she is not physically with us, she continues to encourage service to others.  In the spirit of service, a scholarship fund has been established in Noreen’s name for those 6th, 7th and 8th grade students at St. Francis Xavier Catholic School who show Christian leadership as active members of the Youth Group and give of their time in service to others.  Proceeds will be shared equally between the scholarship fund and St. Francis Xavier Catholic School.
