Jammin Under The Oaks – A Local Music Festival


Jammin Logo

Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church is hosting a music festival on the second Sunday of the months this summer at their oak filled, family-friendly campus.

Jammin’ Under the Oaks summer music festival will bring live blue grass, Indie, and Americana bands on the second Sunday of the month – weather permitting. The inaugural event took place on April 12th from 2 P.M. – 5 P.M. featuring live music, food, vendors, and activities for the whole family.  The next event is scheduled for May 10th.

“We want to share our beautiful campus with the community and bring some live music for everyone to enjoy” says Senior Warden Geales Sands. The event was inspired by similar community events in Awendaw, McClellanville, and North Carolina. The April band is the V-Tones, a self-described “Ragtime/Gypsy/Jazz/Swing/Jugband” group from Charleston. There will also be a mix of local vendors and artists offering food, produce, and a variety of other products. Wires and Wood will perform at the festival on the second Sunday in May-May 10 (Mother’s Day.)

Though Jammin’ Under the Oaks is being hosted by Holy Cross Faith Memorial, it is intended for the community at large. A minimum donation of $5 per car will help to cover the cost of the event. The Holy Cross campus is located at 88 Baskervill Drive off Highway 17 in Pawleys Island. It is also home to St. Elizabeth’s Place, the Baskervill Food Pantry, Smith Medical Clinic, and several large shady oaks.

Enthusiastically Episcopalian Conference


Our beautiful oak shaded, lowcountry campus was the perfect setting for Enthusiastically Episcopalian, a day-long educational conference sponsored by The Episcopal Forum of South Carolina and The Episcopal Church in South Carolina took place at Holy Cross Faith Memorial on Saturday May 3rd, 2014.  The keynote speakers for the day were The Most Reverend Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church; The Reverend Gay Clark Jennings, President of the House of Deputies of The Episcopal Church, The Right Reverend Kenneth L. Price, Jr., former Provisional Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh, and The Right Reverend Charles vonRosenberg, Provisional Bishop of The Episcopal Church in SC.  The high energy day began with Holy Eucharist with the Presiding Bishop celebrating and our very own Rev. Wil Keith delivering a thought provoking sermon.  A “legion” of volunteers (in Father Wil’s words) worked together to  deliver the “radical hospitality” that HCFM is well known for, making our campus a welcoming and enjoyable setting for over 300 conference attendees.




What other people are saying about the Enthusiastically Episcopalian:

From South Carolina Episcopalians Website:              

Holy Cross Faith Memorial and its Rector were standouts

“With prefect weather, it was heard to imagine a better day or better organization than that provided by the host parish on its beautiful Lowcountry campus.  A small children’s choir opened the Eucharist with a lengthy anthem without missing a word, while an enthusiastic adult choir boosted the already boisterous mood as the Presiding Bishop celebrated.

In spite of many recognized names in the congregation, the preacher at the opening Eucharist was the Rev. William J. Keith, the youthful rector of the host parish.  With an easy manner and well-timed sense of humor, Keith provided a thoughtful and provocative sermon, reminding the congregation that as Christians they were called by their founder to work that often required them to move beyond safe and comfortable boundaries.”

Episcopal leader stressing unity at SC church gathering

“The mood at Saturday’s conference was distinctly upbeat in the morning’s general sessions and the afternoon’s workshops.  In between sessions, guests mingled under shady oaks throughout the campus.”



 From The Episcopal Church in South Carolina website

In his sermon, the Reverend Wil Keith, Rector of Holy Cross Faith Memorial, spoke of the many volunteers who came together to organize the day. “You are legion – the good kind of legion!” he said. He spoke of the difference between volunteer recruiting today, where potential helpers are told “everything will be set up for you, all you have to do is show up,” and how Jesus appointed the seventy in Luke 10 to be sent like lambs in the midst of wolves with no purse, bag or sandals.
