Communion Ministers

Mission

We serve God and our Parish community through the distribution of the Holy Eucharist to God’s people. As an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion we are a witness and a sign of the “Eucharist.” We represent the local faith community, the parish, and the universal church.

Who We Are

Parish members who are 18 years or older, are practicing Catholic’s in good standing, having received the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation). We have a love for the Eucharist and for sharing our faith through this ministry, and accepted this call as a gift, and an opportunity to be of service.

What We Do

Assist in distributing the Eucharist to parish members during Mass.

  • Saturday 5:00pm
  • Sunday 8:30am and 11:00am

How We Schedule

We schedule three months in advance. You determine the Mass that you wish to serve by contacting the EM scheduler.

About The Church

St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church

The beginnings of the Church in this area of coastal Georgia date back some four hundred years, long before Oglethorpe established himself at Frederica. From 1566-1742 Spanish missionaries labored, suffered, and were martyred in this locality for the cause of the faith. In 1791 the island of Jekyll was purchased by the du Bignon family. From time to time the head of this family arranged to have a visiting priest celebrate Mass for his family and his slaves.
