Communicators' Gathering

Communicators throughout the Diocese will gather on Wednesday, February 23 from noon until 2 p.m. at St. James, James Island. The cost of $5 will cover the luncheon. RSVP to Vick Vazquez, below.

Communicating on Sunday


Topic: Sunday Bulletin & Communication Pieces

This includes the worship bulletin and the piece that communicates Sunday’s events, the week ahead events, and future events. Please bring 20 copies of what your ushers pass out to each parishioner as they walk in the door. We want to focus on the specific communication tool that people hold in their hand for that whole hour to an hour and a half during the service. In small groups we will compare and contrast and hopefully help out those who are struggling to be effective. I encourage those that do not need this workshop to come anyway in order to help others who need inspiration. I know I am always looking for a better way of communicating.

Lunch will be served. $5.00.

Beginning Experience

On the weekend of Friday, March 18th through Sunday, March 20th   a very special workshop for people who are divorced, widowed or separated will be offered in the South Carolina. Known as the BEGINNING EXPERIENCE, it is an International program, unique in the fields of peer ministry and ministry to the single-again. Its well-structured programs are both psychologically and spiritually sound, having been designed and developed by respected Christian professionals in the fields of ministry, grief psychology, education and organizational process.

While relatively new to the State of South Carolina, since its inception in Texas in 1974, Beginning Experience has spread to 35 states and 8 foreign countries. The first Beginning Experience Weekend in South Carolina was held in October of 2001. This coming Weekend will be the 23rd to be offered across the State at several different venues.. It is open to people of all ages and denominations who struggle under the trauma of having lost a loving relationship and desire to take back control of their life.

Beginning Experience provides the safe space; the support and the tools to heal, to grow, and to turn one’s greatest devastation into opportunity. It is a place to find understanding and compassion from trained, caring people who can truly share the long walk back to wholeness. It is not a sensitivity group or a professional counseling session. It is not intended to provide therapy or to replace the need for it. It is non-confrontational and invitational.

The Weekend Program is designed to help people who are widowed, separated or divorced make a new beginning in life. It provides an atmosphere of support and acceptance where people can come together to re-evaluate themselves and their lives, and move on to the future with renewed hope.

If this sounds like a Weekend that you or someone you know would benefit from call 1-843-814-8408 TODAY, while there is still space available for the Spring Weekend. Cost for the entire weekend is only $235.00 which includes all meals, comfortable accommodations and all workshop materials. This next Weekend is being held at The Oratory Conference Center, just East of Interstate 77 Rock Hill, SC. For additional information, or to request an application call us TODAY.   Reservations for the Spring Weekend will close on Monday, March 14th or when the limited number of slots are filled. The next Weekend after this will be our Fall Weekend, which is scheduled for September / October (30th  –  2nd) on Seabrook Island near Charleston.

Water Missions Walk for Water

2011 Charleston Walk for Water Church Participation Guide
ATTENTION: Youth Ministers, Small Group leaders, Missions and Outreach Committees
What is the Walk for Water?

Join us for a fun, educational walk inspired by the experience of women and children who are responsible for fetching water for their families. After the walk, enjoy family-friendly activities, live entertainment, and refreshments in the park.

When and where is the Walk?

Saturday, March 19, 2011
Check-in at 9am, Walk at 10am
Cannon Park – 129 Rutledge Avenue, Downtown Charleston (Corner of Rutledge Avenue and Calhoun Street)

Why do we Walk for Water?

Every day, some one billion people go without safe, clean drinking water. More than 2.6 billion people lack access to sanitation. Because they lack these vital resources, communities often plummet into a cycle of poverty that prevents them from attaining a better standard of living. Join us as we walk to raise awareness of the global water crisis and help quench the physical and spiritual thirst of our brothers and sisters around the world!

How can I participate?

Participate in the Walk for Water as an individual, or by forming or joining a team to walk in the event. Teams generally include 10-20 walkers, and can be recruited from youth and adult Sunday school classes, small groups, youth groups, or other mission and outreach groups within your church. We encourage each walker to set a personal fundraising goal of $100 or more, which can be done easily and securely using our online tools.

Walk for Water Bulletin Insert:

Water Missions International presents the Walk for Water at Cannon Park on March 19th at 10:00 am. This 3.5-mile walk is inspired by women and children who fetch water for their families on a daily basis.  We encourage walkers to form teams and raise support to bring these families clean water. 
Visit www.watermissions.org/walk for additional information.

Register online at http://www.watermissions.org/walk or by calling 843-769-7395.

Concert at St. Helena's

The Charleston Symphony Chamber Music Orchestra will present an evening of Schubert music on Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 7:00 pm at St. Helena's - in the church. Eight musicians will play music of Schubert while images of Schubert are displayed on a screen. The concert will last approximately 75 minutes, so it will not be a late night for young people. I highly recommend this concert to all adults and young people. Tickets for this event will be only $15, a real bargain. Advance sales tickets can be obtained with a credit card by calling Cindy Branch, Charleston Symphony Orchestra, at 843-723-7528, ext.110. Cindy is available Monday through Friday from 10 am through 4 pm.  The CSO hopes to bring chamber music to Beaufort, specifically to St. Helena's, from time to time. They love the acoustics in this beautiful and historic church! If you love Chamber Music, please mark your calendars to be present on March 22.

64th Annual Plantation Tours

64th Annual Plantation Tours
March 25 and 26, 2011
Sponsored by the Episcopal Church Women
Prince George, Winyah, Parish
Georgetown, SC


Georgetown, South Carolina, founded in 1729, is located in the heart of an area which was once the epitome of genteel southern society prior to the Civil War. The indigo and rice planters of the 18th and 19th centuries rose to a level of wealth that at one time made Georgetown County the wealthiest county in the entire United States.

Dozens of elegant plantation homes and gardens left by these elite gentlemen surround the town along our five rivers, and many of the homes built by them along the city streets remain beautifully appointed. Old slave cabins can still be seen on several of the properties. Even the elegant furnishings often have a tale to tell, whether brought over the Atlantic on a colonial crossing or bundled to the piedmont for refuge during the Civil War. The antebellum plantation culture also produced a rich heritage among the slaves known as Gullah.   Many elements of Gullah are still with us today.

Every spring, the Women of Prince George, Winyah, Episcopal Church, host a Plantation and Town Home Tour. The dates of the 2011 event are Friday, March 25 and Saturday, March 26. Our visitors are able to go inside most of these elegant dwellings and take a step back in time. The Tour begins at the Church Parish Hall, where visitors pick up maps, brochures and bag lunches. Beautiful artwork from the Georgetown Watercolor Society, homemade treats and our national award winning Plantation Tours and Tastes cookbooks are all available for purchase, as well as publications from the Georgetown Historical Society. At day’s end, visitors are invited to the very popular Tea, hosted by the ladies of Prince George Winyah at the historic Winyah Indigo Society Hall.

Tickets are available by mail, in advance. Single-day tickets are $35 each and two-day tickets are $60. Advance ticket sales are underway from January 31, 2011 until March 11, 2011, A limited number of tickets are available at the door on both tour days. The complete list of plantations and homes sites that are featured on tour, and advance ticket and lunch requests, may be found on Prince George Winyah, Parish’s website at www.pgwinyah.org. For more information please call Mrs. Lisa Collins at (843) 545-8291. Forms and requests for tickets may be mailed to Mrs. Lee B. Jones,  PO Box 1307, Georgetown,  South Carolina, 29442
