Welcome to the Web site of the Xavier Society for the Blind.

Lent formally begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10th. Each day during Lent, we will feature a short reflection for that day, with references to Scripture readings, and a short piece to help stimulate your prayer. This year the reflections are from RETURN TO ME - Lenten Reflection from Holy Cross, 2016. If you would like daily reflections delivered directly to your mailbox, please visit the Holy Cross website at: http://www.holycross.edu/returntome.

The reflections may be found on the News and Events page.

If you would like to receive our monthly E-Newsletters free, please click on the link below that says “Sign up now.” Please know that we NEVER EVER sell, rent, or lend our mailing list to anyone EVER. Never.
