  • History

    The Catholic Pastoral Center is located in the former St. Mary’s Home. Since 1937, hundreds of children were cared for by the Sisters of Mercy in this grand building. After the closing of the home in 2010, the building was converted into the offices serving the Diocese of Savannah. The chapel and auditorium were restored to their former elegance, and conference rooms were added. Now, with the availability of event spaces, the tradition of hospitality which began with St. Mary’s Home continues.
