100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima!

October 10, 2017
10 Oct 2017


100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima! In a continuation of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima, the Cathedral will have the statue of Our Lady of Fatima displayed for veneration the 12-14th of each month through October.

Plenary Indulgence

This is a great opportunity to obtain the plenary indulgence granted by Pope Francis for the centennial year. There are three ways to obtain the indulgence, detailed in a statement from the Fatima Shrine in Portugal (see below).

To obtain the plenary indulgence, the faithful must also fulfill the ordinary conditions: go to Confession and Communion, be interiorly detached from sin, and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.

  1. To the faithful who make a pilgrimage to the Fatima Shrine in Portugal and participate in a celebration of prayer dedicated to the Virgin. In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke the Mother of God.
  2. Pray before any statue of Our Lady of Fatima
    To the faithful who visit with devotion a statue of Our Lady of Fatima solemnly exposed for public veneration in any church, oratory or proper place during the days of the anniversary of the apparitions, the 13th of each month from May to October 2017, and there devoutly participate in some celebration or prayer in honor of the Virgin Mary. In addition, the faithful must pray the Our Father, recite the Creed and invoke Our Lady of Fatima.
  3. The elderly and infirm
    To the faithful who, because of age, illness or other serious cause, are unable to get around, may pray in front of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima and must spiritually unite themselves to the jubilee celebrations on the days of the apparitions, the 13th of each month, between May and October 2017. They must also “offer to merciful God with confidence, through Mary, their prayers and sufferings or the sacrifices they make in their own lives.”

Bring Our Lady to Your Home for a Visit!

If you would like to have a special week in your home venerating Our Lady of Fatima, you may sign up to have this beautiful statue in your home. A sign-up sheet is at the back of the church, or contact Patricia Bascom at (843) 367-7007.

Hurricane Irma Cancellations

September 8, 2017
08 Sep 2017

God of heaven and earth, God who carries our lives and the lives of our whole community in your hands, be with us as we prepare for the impact of Hurricane Irma. Help us to release our anxieties and fears into those same caring hands, knowing in faith that your will for us is life and everlasting good. Send your holy angels to watch over us and guard us. May they spread their holy wings to give us shelter against the storm. For you alone, O God, are all good, all life, all love, and that love is for us; through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Dear Parishioners:


Due to the potential impact of Hurricane Irma, the parish offices are closed until Wednesday morning. All Sunday School classes and parish activities and 12:05 daily Mass have been cancelled until Thursday 14 September.


Bishop Guglielmone has dispensed all Catholics from the obligation to attend Holy Mass this Sunday due the potential impact of the hurricane. At the present time the 5:30 pm Vigil Mass and 9 am & 11:15 Sunday Masses will be offered (the 6pm Mass is cancelled).  However, if an evacuation is ordered all weekend Masses will be cancelled.  


Please be assured that you and your family are in my prayers!


Msgr. Steve Brovey
