About Us

The history of Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church is intertwined with that of the African-American community in Pawleys Island in Georgetown County, South Carolina.

The current church grew from two mission churches – Holy Cross-Brookgreen, which included a church, medical clinic and school, and Faith Memorial of Waverly Mills. The Reverend Benjamin Martin and his wife Viola served both churches in the early 1900’s. In 1926, “Salvation came to Pawleys Island in the form of an Episcopal priest, Rev. W. E. Forsythe,” says Nathan Brown, a student at that time and communicant at Holy Cross Faith Memorial until his death.
