Karl Burns, contains both a nomination form (one that may be completed online and one that may be printed and mailed) with a list of those positions to be filled at Convention. We're also including a list of who is currently and has recently served to help you in your discernment process.
Flooding continues; Keep victims and relief workers in prayer
As the flooding progresses through our state we ask you to continue to keep those affected in your prayers. Two of our clergy are serving as chaplains on the front lines. The Rev. Donald Hayes, Vicar of Christ Church, Florence, is Chief Chaplain for the South Carolina Guard. He is overseeing 50 Chaplains deployed throughout our state. The Rev. Nathan Bistis, Associate Rector at St. Luke’s, Hilton Head, is serving as a Chaplain with the National Guard. Both are ministering to flood victims as well as to those involved in search and rescue efforts. While reports are still coming in about churches and individual parish families, we do know that Holy Cross, Stateburg and Holy Comforter, Sumter and St. Paul's, Conway appear to be among the most significantly impacted so far.
Diocese Creates Flood Relief Fund
While we are grateful to God that the majority of our Diocese has come through the recent catastrophic storm unscathed, a few of our parishes and people suffered significant damage that will not be adequately covered by insurance. It is also a reality that additional flooding is expected and the recovery process will continue for some time. That there will be unmet needs is certain.
For those reasons, the Diocesan office is recommending the following possible responses to this disaster:
1. For those wishing to support recovery in those diocesan congregations needing assistance, please make a designated gift on the Diocesan website for “disaster assistance.” Contribute as "guest."
