On Saturday, December 4, Catholics across the diocese were presented with the Bishop Gartland Recognition of Service. Mr. Bernice Mitchell from St. Christopher Church in Claxton (Statesboro Deanery) was one of the recipients. You can learn a bit more about him below.
Mr. Mitchell has served St. Christopher Catholic Church dutifully and humbly for over 40 years. He has participated as a member of the Parish Council, provides meals to the congregation, prepares the Church every Sunday for Mass, and serves as our Cantor. During the pandemic, he took it upon himself to ensure the church was sterilized before and after each Mass. Bernice’s lifetime contributions to St. Christopher serve as a role model for all Catholics, the Diocese, and our parish.
