Keeping You Close

03-29-2020Father Gregory Wilson

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As things may easily change in five days since publishing this column, keep plugged into our website and Facebook pages for the very latest updates that affect our parish family life.

A spot of good news… We have a priest assigned to help “bridge the gap” until we can get an official parochial vicar. So, even while in the midst of this unusual time, we give a warm (virtual, perhaps) welcome to Fr. Filip (pronounced Phillip) Wodecki. Father Wodecki was ordained on December 28, 2011, at our Cathedral in Charleston and has served at various parishes throughout our diocese. Most recently he was helping in St. Gregory the Great parish in Bluffton. Father Filip Wodecki is in between assignments right now, so we are blessed to have some additional help. Welcome, Father Wodecki!


Events & Announcements

Consider Helping!

Please consider picking up the phone and calling those that you know who may be isolated and in require assistance or maybe just in need of a kind word of concern.

The parish has many volunteers willing and eager to help with food, errands, medication pickups — all things needed by so many that might be challenging right now. But we can only help those who we know about and we are relying on you for that part.

If you or someone you know is in need — please email Bette Ross at bross@charlestondiocese.org or call at 803-649-4777, ext 101. She is coordinating our efforts with support from many ministries, including St. Vincent de Paul.

Mass during the week

If you want to see Mass during the week, Bishop Barron posts the Mass in his chapel at 8:15am each day. Watch at www.wordonfire.org/daily-mass/.

Perpetual Adoration

We are in need of an adorer for Wed 2:00am (Tue night) for when Adoration in Ste. Claire Chapel resumes again. Is God calling you to meet with Him at this special hour? Please click here to sign up so you will be ready to start.

Holy Week Events will be STREAMED ONLINE

Altar Flower Donations

Donating altar flowers is a simple, lovely way to honor a loved one, glorify God, and add beauty to the altar. Flowers can be donated in honor of a living person or in memory of someone who has died, in celebration of an anniversary or other milestones, or in thanksgiving for friends or family.
