Renovation Update

This week, the team at Terry Byrd Eason Design submitted photo-realistic renderings of proposed improvements of our worship space.

The process is gaining momentum. Please stay tuned!

Bishop's Annual Appeal

As stewards of God’s gifts, you are asked to support the needs of our diocese through your prayers. You are also asked to share your gifts and talents by participating in parish or diocesan ministries. Finally, all members of our diocese are invited to grow in generosity by making a sacrificial gift to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal. 

 

Gifts to the Bishop's Annual Appeal help to sustain Catholic schools and parishes, Catholic Charities, and programs of religious education, campus ministry, vocations, and respect for life.

Vaccine Info

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has released a memo concerning the COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. The USCCB has determined that neither vaccine poses an ethical problem for Catholics, because neither vaccine involved the use of fetal stem cells.

Suspension of Nursery and Childcare

Until further notice, due to health and safety concerns related to COVID-19, the Nursery and Child Care programs previously offered during Masses have been suspended.

Dispensation from Mass Attendance

In light of increasing vaccination rates, the Bishop of Charleston has decided to end the general dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass, effective June 5.

 

Special dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass is to remain in effect for those who are: 

  1. Considered "high risk" due to underlying conditions

  2. Exhibiting flu-like symptoms

  3. Likely to be contagious with COVID or influenza

  4. Sick, homebound, or infirmed

  5. Pregnant

  6. 65 years of age or older 

  7. Cannot attend Mass through no fault of their own

  8. Unable to attend due to fear of infection

 

The Bishop recommends the wearing of masks but acknowledges that those who have been fully vaccinated are not required to do so.

 

The Bishop strongly recommends that eligible Catholics receive a vaccination as soon as possible. He reminds us that it is not sinful in any way to receive any of the three COVID-19 vaccines.
