Our Mission Statement
Christ the King, a Church of the Catholic Diocese of Savannah, Georgia, provides our Eurcharistic-centered faith community with spiritual nourishment through the celebration of Word and Sacrament. We pledge to know, to love and to serve God by seeing the face of Christ in one another, in welcoming our visitors and loving our neighbors.
The Catholic community in Harris County dates back to the early 1960’s when Father Lawrence A. Lucree began celebrating Mass in people’s homes and at the Callaway Gardens. A chalet-style church was built on a U.S. highway 27 site near Hamilton, GA and dedicated in 1972. In 1980, Sr. Rosemary Sullivan, (Franciscan Missionaries of Mary), was assigned to the area as Pastoral Assistant, along with Sr. Philomena Fogerty and Sr. Nancy Exconde. In 2002, Father Ronnie Madden, priest in residence, and his parishioners purchased an 18 acre site near Pine Mountain, GA on which to build a new church, parish hall and religious education classrooms.
On November 26, 2006 ‘Feast of Christ the King’ Bishop Boland of Savannah Diocese officially declared Christ the King a Parish Church of the Savannah Diocese: no longer a mission church.
