Lord God, You made us out of nothing and redeemed us by the Precious Blood of Your only Son. Preserve the work of Your Hands, and defend both me and the tender fruit of my womb from all perils and evils. I beg of You, for myself, Your grace, protection, and a happy delivery. Sanctify my child, and make this child Yours forever. Grant this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Pray for our Troops

If you know of anyone actively serving our country and would like their service noted on this page please contact Frances Gledhill in the Church Office at 803.649.4777

If your loved ones have been discharged from the military, please let us know so they can be removed from the list.

Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands, protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need and give us peace. I ask this in the name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior. Amen.
