Mother Mary Frances Clarke Heritage Circle

Named after Mother Mary Frances Clarke, the foundress of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Xavier’s Heritage Circle was established to secure financial support for Xavier’s long term needs and recognize individuals who have made provisions in their estate plans for Xavier College Preparatory.

It is our hope that you will consider including Xavier in your estate plan, and if you have already done so, please let us know so that we can include you as a member of Xavier’s Mother Mary Frances Clarke Heritage Circle!
