Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina convention held in Bluffton

From South Carolina-

About 400 delegates and clergy members from across the eastern and coastal portions of the state flocked to Bluffton this weekend for the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina’s 225th convention.

The two-day annual gathering, held Friday and Saturday at the historic Church of the Cross in Old Town and Cross Schools on Buckwalter Parkway, was highlighted by a committee’s recommendation for the diocese to join the Anglican Church in North America.

Founded in 1785, the Diocese of South Carolina is one of the nine original dioceses of the national Episcopal Church and has been geographically split into two groups since 1922, with the other group known as the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina. The original diocese now covers 24 counties, represents 53 congregations and roughly 23,000 members and is headquartered in Charleston.
