Christmas at Xavier

Be Merry, Musketeers!

Picture it: Outside, the snow is blanketing the roads and sidewalks, transforming the landscape into a winter wonderland. Inside, the fire is crackling, and the presents are wrapped and ready under the Christmas tree. Cookies are baking in the oven and your favorite basketball team — the Musketeers, of course — are getting ready to play on television. Could it get any more perfect? Welcome to the holiday season, from your Xavier University family.

A Father Graham Message

Sometimes we need to be reminded that it's best to slow down. We need to lay down our worries and take time to remember what is most important in our lives. Fr. Graham reminds us to do just that in this holiday-inspired message.
