Holy Cross Church in Pawleys Island hosts Episcopal Convention

From South Carolina-

The church hosted the 225th annual Convention of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina to worship, celebrate and conduct the business of the diocese.

The Rev. Wil Keith, pastor of Holy Cross, said he was excited to host the event.

“This is a very historic place and most of our history is African-American and may not be widely known,” Keith said before the event. “We are excited to tell the story of the church, past, present and future.”

The Right Rev. Dr. Robert Gillies of Scotland was the preacher for the opening Convention Eucharist on Friday. Since 2007, he has served as Bishop of Aberdeen and Orkney, one of the seven historic dioceses of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
