Brunswick’s St. Francis Xavier Catholic School broke ground on a new school facility on Friday.
The proposed facility will be a 30,000-square-foot school located at Grant and Howe streets in downtown Brunswick.
According to Bishop Stephen Parkes of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Savannah, the new school will be a lovely addition to the city’s entry, as he informed parents, kids, school employees, and those assembled for the ceremony.
“I know a lot of effort has gone into making it something wonderful and lovely for God, as well as for all of the young people, the students who will be attending,” he remarked.
“It’s a true honour for us as members of the Diocese of Savannah to be working with you and to be able to produce something that will stand as a welcome to Brunswick’s gateway.”
Local benefactors have made the $9 million renovations possible.
Carrie Jane Williamson, interim superintendent of Catholic schools for the Diocese of Savannah, remarked, “What a wonderful day for the city of Brunswick, the community of St. Francis Xavier, and the broader church.”
“A student should have the sensation of entering a new school environment, one enlightened by the light of religion and with its distinct features, from the minute he or she walks into a Catholic school.”
“Today, we come together to lay the foundation for just that – a new environment enlightened by faith and the faithful.”
The new school will include the latest in modern design, she said. In addition, the school’s features, including a broadcasting studio, large contemporary classrooms, and complete safety and security measures, have been carefully considered.
St. Francis Xavier Catholic School principal Terry Mermann expressed his delight at the school’s achievement.
“It’s wonderful to see so many individuals here today who have given so much of their time, talent, and also treasure to help us reach this special day,” he remarked.
