Xaverian Welcome

The Xaverian Welcome Ceremony is held at the beginning of the academic year and it’s a student’s first journey at StFX.

As a community, first year students gather to make the Xaverian Commitment:

"We the newest members of the St.FX community, hereby commit ourselves to the pursuit of excellence in our academic, social and spiritual lives."

The Xaverian Welcome Ceremony is a very special and unique celebration of community at StFX. As newly committed members, first year students will be reminded of their pledge throughout their time at StFX and will recount their first steps as Xaverians during future events such as X-Ring, the Xaverian Farewell, Baccalaureate Mass, and Convocation.
