Children in Eighth Grade are prepared for the Confirmation through our Religion PSR program. High School students desiring to be confirmed meet for Monday Evening classes beginning in January and running for about nine weeks. The celebration of the Sacrament usually happens either just before Easter or just after, depending on the availability of the Bishop.


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.
