In contrast to some larger area churches, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton stands out as an uncrowded, warm and friendly parish providing a more intimate worship environment. Our pastor is Very Reverend C. Thomas Miles, KHS, MCL, JCL.
No Taxpayer Funded Abortion
Please Sign the Petition
Congress is trying to force Americans to pay for abortion.
The Hyde Amendment and similar laws have protected taxpayers from funding elective abortion for 45 years. Now, powerful members of Congress want to take away these laws that both Democrats and Republicans have supported for nearly half a century.
WHAT HAPPENS WITHOUT THESE PROTECTIONS?
Billions of taxpayer dollars could be used to pay for abortion.
Sign the petition to Congress!
30 For 30 Prayer Campaign
Join us this month for our 30 for 30 prayer campaign as we pray for more vocations within our diocese. Every day at 3:30 p.m. for the 30 days of June, we will pray three Hail Marys and ask that God sends us 30 seminarians. Twice a week, seminarians will lead the prayers on our Facebook and Instagram Live platforms. On the days that won’t be streamed, we ask that you continue to pray.
Our Lady of South Carolina, pray for us!

To: All priests, deacons and principals
Earlier this year, we were extremely disappointed to report that a bill regarding the death penalty passed the S.C. Senate without the opportunity for public comment. In fact, death by firing squad was added in the Senate version of the bill.
That legislation is now coming before the S.C. House judiciary committee, and seemingly has the votes to pass. Gov. Henry McMaster has indicated on more than one occasion that he will sign this legislation.
It is long past time to abolish the death penalty in South Carolina.
We urge members of the S.C. House of Representatives to vote against this bill, and to redirect the energy and resources that currently go toward executions into providing assistance to victims’ families. Please share this link with parishioners and fellow Catholics so we can all contact our House member directly to oppose issue Catholic Conference Action Center. Once the brief form has been completed a message will appear that can be sent directly to your representative.
Every person is created in the image and likeness of God. We do not need to find more ways to execute our brothers and sisters. We must protect their lives from the moment of conception to natural death.
