Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Church of the Purification, Locust Grove Catholic Church, Taliaf

The oldest Catholic church in the state of Georgia is located in the small town of Sharon. This wood frame building was built in 1821, though originally it was located next to the original cemetery a few miles away in Locust Grove (moved in 1877).  Locust Grove Catholic church, now Church of the Purification, is hopefully on its way to being more securely preserved.  For more history and the plans to protect the church, follow this link Purification Church .
