Changes in Mass Times

Father Morey has made some Mass schedule changes. These changes were made necessary with the reassignment of Fr. JP to St. Michael, Garden City.

The last Sunday 5 pm Mass will be October 2nd. The last Thursday 6:30 pm Mass was Sept. 29th. 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.

Online Giving

Click the link above to get startedOLG_Intro_940x207_A

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 You can choose to do a One Time Gift, or you can set up regularly scheduled contributions that are withdrawn on the date you specify in the system.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.
