Lieber & McDougall Correctional Institutes receive Easter Cards

The 1100 Easter cards St. John's parishioners faithfully provided to our contact Nancy of St. Clare of Assisi Catholic Church on Daniel Island are delivered to the Chaplain and Associate Chaplain at Lieber Correctional Institute. The overflow of cards was then given by Nancy to the Program Director for MacDougall Correctional Institute. Thank you, once again, for your desire to share the love of God at Easter and give these men hope, please continue to pray for them, through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Uganda Scholarships

We continue to collect donations for Diocese of Northern Uganda children's schooling. Please consider a scholarship this year for a clergy child to go to a Christian school. A scholarship of $150 for a year's tuition in Uganda is comparable to the $8,000 average Christian school here. What a wonderful gift to that child, their family and to the community, keeping Christian education alive for the Diocese. You may make a check out to St John's with scholarship in the memo line or Click here to give online.

Easter Sunday Altar Flowers

Flowers were given to the glory of God and in loving memory of
Christine R. and Thomas E. Jacques Jr. by Linda Jacques Hihn.

St. John's Altar Flower Ministry designs new flower creations each week for Sunday services. Flowers are selected individually and prepared on Friday. The cost to dedicate flowers is $70 for two vases or $40 for one. Contact Sally Dixon (, 843-709-4894) to sign up for the Sunday of your choice.
The flower delivery guild needs volunteers to deliver flowers in accord with COVID protocols. If you have delivered flowers in the past, or would like to join that ministry, please contact Sally Dixon.

At St. John's


Sunday, Apr. 11
Almighty and everlasting God, who in the Paschal mystery established the new covenant of reconciliation: Grant that all who have been reborn into the fellowship of Christ's Body may show forth in their lives what they profess by their faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

For Persecuted Churches

We pray for persecuted churches around the world. For the month of April we pray for the nation of Colombia. Heavenly Father, Christians and Christian churches in Colombia are suffering due to violent drug cartels, guerrilla warfare, and organized crime groups. We pray for the Christian churches in Colombia to share the gospel of Christ despite all these persecutions. Enliven their spirits by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.
