Sign Up for New Directory Photos

02-Family Album Signup Button
It’s time once again to do a new directory. The portraits will be taken beginning on Thursday March 9,10,11, and again on March 14-19. There are many great deals that LifeTouch will be offering. You will still receive your 8×10 portrait and a free directory, but also for every family have a portrait done Lifetouch will give the parish $5.00, also if you bring a non-perishable food item you will receive $5.00 of any order you might decide to place. Seniors 60+ receive an extra 20 %, off as do military(active and retired), and first responders.
My hope is that we can get this directory done a bit more timely than in the past, but in order to do that we need volunteers. To kick off we need a committee that would be willing to help get people signed up for their appointments, to take pictures of our different  ministries, to call people who have not signed up prior to the week of March 5th, and last to help put the directory together.  We need a least one or two people to be at the reception desk to check families in and have them fill out their paperwork and guide them through the process.
If we work together we can have a beautiful directory and have it back in less time than it has taken in the past. Simply go to the link below and follow the instructions, it is very easy, but if you have any questions please call the church office 843-662-5674

We are happy to announce that we are now offering Online Giving!

This convenient new system does not require you to contact your bank to sign up or to make changes. You can use any of your checking or savings accounts and the funds will be automatically transferred to our parish bank account.

Online Giving helps you maintain your giving even if you cannot attend Mass. You can choose to do a One Time Gift, or you can set up regularly scheduled contributions that are withdrawn on the date you specify in the system.
This system is more convenient for the parish than electronic checks from your bank. It’s convenient for you because you can make changes at any time, see reports on your contribution history and generate tax statements at each year’s end.

Online Giving is very easy to use and requires no special knowledge other than how to access the Internet. If you haven’t already signed up, click the link at the top of the page to get started.

Building Expansion Information

Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Anthony Catholic Church & School, As you may know, over the past several years, St. Anthony Catholic Church & School has been actively engaged in developing a Strategic Plan for the construction, renovation and improvement of our parish & school facilities. This plan includes a New Parish Life Multipurpose Hall and Vestibule Addition to the Church. At  this time, I am very happy to announce that we have made the decision to take the next step: A Planning Study  in preparation of conducting a parish-wide capital campaign. Since careful arrangement and thoughtful planning are required for any successful venture the advice of our parishioners is essential. As an integral member of our community, your participation in this study is an important factor in making this project a success. Your vital input will enable us to formulate a plan of action, and together we can make educated projections concerning the upcoming campaign. Enclosed is a Planning Study Survey and the Strategic Plan Project Summary. The questions of the survey are intended to allow our parish to obtain an accurate view of the feelings, attitudes and financial support of our parishioners toward the future project. Once completed, you may place it in the weekend collection basket, return it through the mail, or bring it to the parish office. I have enclosed a return envelope for your convenience. Please return your completed Survey to the parish  or if you wish to fill it out electronically click on the SurveyMonkey link below. To assist us, the parish has retained Guidance In Giving, Inc., a professional Catholic development organization, to work in cooperation with our staff in conducting the Planning Study. Based on opinions and input from parishioners like yourself, the firm will guide us in formulating a plan of action and making recommendations regarding the next steps in implementing a successful capital campaign. Please be assured that this survey does not include a formal solicitation. The campaign solicitation will not begin until after the successful completion of the Planning Study. I thank you in advance for your advice and counsel as we make plans for our new parish facilities. I ask that you keep this study in your prayers.
Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Robert E. Morey

Pastor

Mass intentions that were made for these Mass times have been moved to the next available date.  Most have been transferred to December. Please call me at 843-662-5674 or email andrea.foyle@saintanthony.com if you would like to know the new date.

We are sorry for any inconvenience that these changes may cause.

As always, pray: Lord, send us priests.

Lord, send us holy priests.

Lord, send us many holy priests.
