Welcome / About

Welcome to our brand new St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church website! We are excited at this opportunity to serve the people of our parish and local community and also at the chance for outreach. We are a community of about 600 families and we also have a Catholic school grades Pre-K thru 8th grade. We have been a presence in Brunswick for over 115 years as our church and school were founded in 1900.

Feel free to contact me or any of the staff with questions you have about St. Francis Xavier Church at 912-265-3249. In our mission statement we say, "...we are called through Baptism to accept the responsibility and challenge of proclaiming the message of Jesus through worship, education and service." We hope our presence on the Internet will help us proclaim Jesus!

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.
