Priests are available for Confession on Saturdays 4:00 – 4:30pm and Sundays 7:45 – 8:15am or by appointment. Twice a year– during Advent and Lent–priests are available for a Communal Celebration of the Sacrament. Children are prepared to celebrate their First Reconciliation through our school and through our PSR program. We celebrate the sacrament on a Saturday in Advent.


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.
