CORPS Photos

The Saint Francis Xavier Sancians, formed in 1959, was a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in Weymouth, Massachusetts. It was sponsored by St. Francis Xavier Church Catholic Youth Organization (CYO).

The corps’ colors were red and white.

Awards included the Class C Circuit and Festival Championship in 1961, and DCI Division A-60 Championship in 1985 and '86. The corps held an annual contest the third Sunday of May every year. The corps' highest rankings may have been a tenth-place finish in the 1972 CYO Nationals and a fourth-place finish in the 1973 VFW Championships.

The Sancians continued to complete until at least 1987.
