Church to Close for the Summer - Not!
It’s been fun. I’ve really enjoyed being with you.
Thank you for your faithful attendance over the last nine months but summer’s here, and as you know, we close down the church for the months of June, July and August. We’ll see you in September...
Of course I’m kidding, but I’m kidding to make a point. The point is this: Summer is here, and so are we!
Let’s say you’ve got a big day planned next Sunday. Rather than miss a Sunday, why not try a different service? Have you worshiped at 8:00 a.m. lately? If it's been awhile, or you’ve never tried our earliest service, do check us out. There’s a joy there and a welcoming friendliness that will make you want to come back again and again. And you can be on your way to the lake or the beach or on the links before 9:00!
An Evening of Prayer and Remembrance
1Charleston Prayer Gathering at the CathedralThursday, June 16 at 6:30pm
Our friends at 1Charleston have organized a city-wide evening of prayer, worship, and conversation on Thursday, June 16 at 6:30pm.We hope you will join us for this night as we seek our Heavenly Father’s face and ask the Spirit to give comfort and hope to those who grieve and to empower a supernatural movement of unity and reconciliation in our City. The gathering will begin in the Cathedral, and then afterwards we will move into the parish hall to have a family-style snack supper and opportunity for conversation together with our neighbors from all different places, ethnicities, and backgrounds. Parents: Looking for childcare? CRU has volunteered to assist with nursery care during this event!
Please be aware that we have very limited parking for this event. Consult the parking map to be aware of the other available parking lots near our building. Thank you!
Seven to be Ordained to the Vocational Diaconate June 11
All of the following candidates have demonstrated servant ministries outside their local parish that both affirm a servant’s heart and a calling to a diaconal ministry. Each has completed a two-year process of instruction, under the direction of Canon Mike Malone, to prepare them for this ministry. The course of study involved meeting together one Saturday a month for instruction from invited priests and deacons of the Diocese. Each comes with his or her own unique spiritual journey and consequent gifts for ministry.
James A. Cato (Jim), a member of the Parish Church of St. Helena, Beaufort, retired in 2008 after 39 years as a journalist -- 28 years at The Beaufort Gazette where he served as editor, publisher and editorial page editor.

Since 2004, he has served on missions to Asia (the unreached people groups), the Dominican Republic and Uganda. Jim feels called to many ministries/missions, but his passion is to the unreached people of the world -- especially Asia. He is a U.S. Army veteran, a graduate of the Defense Language Institute and the University of South Carolina. He served in Vietnam in 1968. He has been married to Susan for 46 years. They have three children and two grandchildren.
“It’s About Relationships” New Wineskins, International Visitors, Diocese Pursues Partnerships
What is the impetus behind this movement?
In part it’s driven by Bishop Mark Lawrence’s vision to “Make Biblical Anglicans for a Global Age,” and his challenge for our Diocese to pursue mutually enriching missional relationships which help shape emerging Anglicanism in the 21st century.
“It’s about relationships,” said the Rev. Bob Lawrence, Chair of the Diocese’s Anglican Communion Development (ACD) Committee. “These experiences give us an opportunity to know people face-to-face, person-to-person. It’s not just another Diocese, it’s Geison and Rose or Elias and Grant. We share a common faith in Jesus Christ and together we’re living that out day to day in an Anglican context.”
