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

THANK YOU to everyone who attended and supported the recent AN EVENING WITH RUDY at the NY Athletic Club. We are still accepting contributions in support of the event, but it was a great success and those who attended are raving about what a wonderful evening it was.

The audio edition of the latest encyclical by Pope Francis is now available on our website for download. It is in 4-parts, and each part runs about 90 minutes, so get a comfortable chair. Only available to registered clients.

We are taking reservations for the braille transcription of the encyclical. Call or email the office to put your name on the list, so the braille version can be sent to you as soon as it is ready. Again, only available to registered clients. Registration is free, as are all of our services.

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.
