Five Georgia Martyrs Canonization Effort and Mural 

 

The Mural that now is displayed in the Narthex was painted by artist Clorinda Bell.

The formal dedication of the mural of the 5 Georgia Martyrs will take place on Saturday, Sept. 17th after the 4:30pm Mass. A reception and presentation will then follow in the Social Hall, along with an exhibition of Catholic art painted by Clorinda.

In the late 16th century, six Spanish Franciscan priests came to what is now the Georgia coast to minister to the native people called the Guale.

By 1597 there were 5 missions in Coastal Georgia where Franciscan friars preached the Gospel, learned the Guale language, and lived peacefully with the native population. In September 1597 due to the friars not allowing a baptized Guale man to take a second wife, the heir to the Guale chiefdom ordered the death of the friars. Over a 3 day period, five of the six friars were killed.
