Anglican Women's Retreat

Anglican Women's Retreat

  • St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Anglican Women’s leadership team is excited to announce that Bishop Mark Lawrence will be the speaker for the annual retreat at St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center this September.

“Prayer is as vast as the Universe and yet remains as near as the closet and as personal as your heart beat,” said Bishop Lawrence.  “No prayer sounds so deep in the soul or rings so high in heaven as this prayer the Lord has taught us to pray and by his grace called us to live.  To study it, pray it and seek to live it will be life’s great adventure.”

Yvonne Duty, President of the Diocesan Anglican Women’s Ministries, said, “I’m so looking forward to this time together. The time away at St. Christopher is always a treat, and the fellowship dear, but I know that we’ll be inspired by the Bishop’s teaching.”

The retreat will begin at 4 p.m. on Friday, September 21 with supper served at 6:30 p.m. The gathering will end on Sunday morning following a service of Holy Eucharist.

Rooms and cabins are available, as are commuter reservations for those who do not wish to stay at the camp overnight.

Information about scholarship assistance is available from Mary Kauser at 843-814-4035 or by email at marykauser@gmail.com. Anyone seeking a scholarship for the retreat should contact Mary before registering. Those in need of assistance are also encouraged to contact their parish rectors.

DUE TO WEATHER THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED            "9/11" First Responders Supper

DUE TO WEATHER THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED "9/11" First Responders Supper

We remember the events of September 11, 2001, where 2,996 lives were lost.  Included in that figure were 343 firefighters, 23 police officers, and 37 port authority officers.  Many other first responders suffered great loss and bear the scars of this tragedy.

But as first responders do, they answered a call and responded to the need knowing the consequences.  However, the consequences can take an emotional toll, a burden that can be hard to carry, and difficult to shed.

As a first responder, your sacrifice is great.  We thank you.  Please allow us to serve you on such a significant day of remembrance to all in our country, and all who serve Her needs as first responders.

Jesus says

(Matthew 11:28-30)

28Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

St. Paul writes to the Philippians (4:6-7) 

6do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

You Are Invited to (Any or all):

 Come for food

 Come for fellowship

  Come in Remembrance

 Come to Share

 Come for prayer

We welcome all of our area first responders to enjoy a home-cooked supper free of charge.  It is our way of saying “thanks” for all you do. 

We also recognize the burdens first responders carry.  Therefore, along with our meal we will have private prayer stations and consultation areas set up for those who desire to be prayed for and/or heard.

IF COMING, PLEASE: 

Give us a call with the number of people in your party (a message left is fine if nobody answers)  803-485-2504.

OR

Drop us an email @ churchoffice@ftc-i.net OR

Stop by the Church Office to let us know in person (9 North Dukes Street) 

We would hate to run short of food!  Let us know you are coming.

AND

If you are working and unable to join us but would like a take-out plate to grab quickly let us know that too.  We will be happy to prepare one for you!
