St. Vincent de Paul

Vincentian ministry is a call to holiness through service to the poor. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, supported locally by St. Francis Xavier and St. William Catholic Churches, operates a food pantry, a thrift store, and provides financial assistance for those in need. This ministry depends upon donations of non-perishable foods, clothing, small appliances, furniture, and money. Committed volunteers are always needed to process donations for the store, distribute food from the pantry, and counsel those requesting financial aid. If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please contact Don Heinecke through the parish office at (912) 265-3249 or stop by the SVdP Thrift Store located at 1217 Newcastle Street to fill out a volunteer application. Store hours are 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.


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.
