Religious education of children begins and grows in the home, within the context of a nurturing family life. Parents are the first and primary religious educators of children. St Francis Xavier Catholic Church partners with parents to educate our children to love, know and serve our Lord, Jesus Christ, and grow in His compassion.

Parish School of Religion (PSR) is a program of systematic teaching of our children from grades Pre-K (4 yr old) to 8. We teach the Holy Scriptures and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Our teachers also prepare the children to receive the sacraments. All children of the Parish, whether attending Catholic or Public schools, are invited to attend our religious education classes and experiences.

PSR meets Sundays of the school calendar year, 9:30am to 10:45 in the school. For more information call the DRE, Deacon Larry Guyer, at 264-6805, ext 10.


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.
