Internal Governance

Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church is part of The Episcopal Church (TEC) and The Episcopal Church in South Carolina.  We belong to the Peedee/Waccamaw Deanery.

The parish of Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church is led by the Rector and governed by the Vestry consisting of 12 members including the Senior Warden, Junior Warden, and Treasurer. The Vestry meets monthly on Wednesday evenings beginning at 5:00 pm. Vestry meetings are open to the parish.

Vestry members assume responsibility for a variety of ministries: Worship and Music, Faith Formation, Outreach, Pastoral Care, Communications, Hospitality, Stewardship, and Welcome. We also have numerous members of our parish who are involved with many other ministries featured elsewhere on our website.

In addition, at its Annual Meeting in February, the parish elects delegates to the annual Diocesan Convention.

Our parish prides itself on governance by the people. While the Vestry represents the people of Holy Cross Faith Memorial, each congregant and guest is invited to take advantage of the many opportunities to fully participate and engage in the life of our church.
