“The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life. They give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian’s life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life”
Baptism is the sacrament through which someone is united to Christ, to His Church and to His way of living. It is the way that we are incorporated into the Body of Christ. We accept Christ and we understand that we become members of His Body – the Church. Baptism class is held every first Thursday or the month at 7:00 PM.
No matter how far afield we go in our faith journey, through God’s mercy and forgiveness, we can always begin again. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated each Saturday from 4:45 PM to 5:15 PM or by appointment with one of our priests. Call the Parish Office to schedule an appointment at (803) 329-2662.
Saint Anne Parish is centered on Christ present in the Eucharist. Our parishioners are always encouraged to fully participate at Mass by preparing themselves to receive Christ in both the Precious Body and Blood and to carry Christ into the world through lives that reflect his presence in their actions.
The purpose of the Sacrament of Confirmation is to be strengthened in the faith and to be anointed with the Holy Spirit. Currently in the Diocese of Charleston, teens from 9th Grade to 12th Grade are confirmed after two years of preparation.
