St. Francis Xavier Church in Brunswick, named for and by the Jesuits (Society of Jesus) who first served at the church as early as 1844, celebrated its 150th anniversary Dec. 2 with a Mass celebrated by Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv. For 500 years the sacraments have been celebrated in the Golden Isles by priests traveling with Spanish explorers, according to the parish Facebook. The parish has also been served by diocesan priests (1871-1897, 2014-present), the Marists (1897-1988) and Conventual Franciscans (1988-2014).

      Nine years ago, I was part of a local running club that was training for a half-marathon. I loved this group and all the time we spent together. It was a good season where my five sons were all young enough to not have too many activities going on, and I was able to sneak out three days a week for group runs that took me all over our city.

      The prayers of the faithful had just begun when I received a pair of requests for intercession of my own: “Daddy, can I go to the bathroom?” was loudly whispered by Jesse and Eli over several siblings down the pew.

      The young adults who meet once a month to spend time with Jesus before the Blessed Sacrament at St. Mary on the Hill Church don’t have many things in common. 

       

      Some are married, others single. Some are postgraduate students of medicine and physical therapy at Augusta University while still others work in various careers including teaching, the military, medicine, engineering or business administration.

      How does it feel to learn that a beloved family member is being threatened by an active shooter? My daughter and I found out last week. My grandson is in kindergarten and attends a public school within walking distance of his home.
