Saint Lawrence Catholic Church

St. Lawrence, the first Catholic mission in Gwinnett County, began in 1963 as a mission of Holy Cross parish in Chamblee.

During the 1990s, St. Lawrence assisted in the resettlement of refugees from Vietnam, Rwanda; and several other nations; in 1998 the growing number of Spanish-speaking Catholics in the area prompted the parish’s first Hispanic ministry, which has grown into twice weekly celebrations of the Eucharist, with a flourishing religious education program and other ministries in Spanish; in 1999, St. Lawrence twinned with the parish of St. Thomas d’Aquin in Thomassique, Haiti, an experience of Catholic solidarity that has blessed both communities richly.

In 2004, the parish served an estimated 3,000 households and continues to grow.

In 2016-2017, they worked with Pinnacle Custom Signs in rebranding their outdoor signage to match renovations that were done to the church and to have a more modern appeal.
