"I invite all the faithful...to make this place, the first Catholic settlement (1790) in this land, a place of pilgrimage and prayer."
Most Reverend Gregory J. Hartmayer, Archbishop of Atlanta
Purification Heritage Center is revitalizing the first Catholic settlement in Georgia into an entire faith-filled district that includes a church, retreat center, and farm.
We are in the process of building cottages and event space for overnight retreats and visits.
