St. Francis Xavier Church, located at High School Road and South Street, is over 100-years-old and serves a vibrant and diverse congregation. Masses are celebrated in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Latin.

From 1926 through 1986, it was the summer church of the Kennedy family, who donated the central altar in memory of their son Joseph A. Kennedy, Jr., who died during World War II.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, and Mrs. Kennedy attended Sunday Mass there throughout the summers of his presidency until his assassination on November 22, 1963.  Various family members continue to attend when on the Cape.
