WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF
SAINT GREGORY THE GREAT CATHOLIC CHURCH
Welcome to the website of Saint Gregory the Great Church in Bluffton, South Carolina. We’re a history-making congregation of Catholic people for several reasons.
One is the heritage of the Pinckney family, settlers of this Lowcountry region near Hilton Head who kept the faith, built their own family chapel, and expanded sufficiently to become a parish, Saint Andrew Church, in 1960.
A second reason that we’re history-making is the unprecedented growth of this parish family. From 1995 to the present, the parish has increased its membership by more than 5,000 souls. We were renamed Saint Gregory the Great Church in the year 2000 when a new, expansive parish facility was built to house a church and to begin developing an ambitious master plan for educational and other ministerial facilities. From beginnings with South Carolina planters and educators, the parish membership now includes people from a diversity of professional backgrounds and racial, ethnic, and regional origins.
A third reason that we’re news makers is that the parish is noted for our volunteer spirit. A prayerful and devout group of Catholics, we’re very active in service to church, civic community, and persons in need.
Faith, family, and fellowship characterize us. Read on, and know that here amid marshlands and marvelous seascapes, there is a parish full of people who hold you in prayer.
Cena at Cana
A new way of fellowship and prayer is beginning at SGG called Cena at Cana aka the Dinner & Rosary Club. Each club will be comprised of families and/or parishioners your age who will be invited to meet monthly or more frequently to break bread and to join in the prayer of the rosary. This is a great opportunity for fellowship with other parishioners and to "elevate" those friendships in prayer. Each group potentially will have a leader, a host and guests who bring a covered dish. Sign up can be done online at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/C7FJJBW . You can also call the parish office at 843-815-3100 and leave your name and telephone number.
What is U.P.L.I.F.T.?
To engage and inspire women in our Church to foster their Catholic faith, outreach in our community and strengthen our families through compassion and fellowship.
We wish to unify women in our Parish to create opportunities for fellowship and community service.
We are a prayerful group. Prayer is a part of our daily lives and the faith that we live in the church.
Love for God, our families, our parish and our community is the core reason for starting U.P.L.I.F.T.
Intuition, like faith, broadens human reason and allows us to believe in something that is not tangible, yet we know exists. In turn, that belief can have a tremendous cause and effect in our community.
We have faith in our Church, our Catholic religion and that the good deeds done in this world will in turn pave the way for good works to continue.
We will work together to transcend any barriers or limitations that may inhibit our faith or
lessen our ability to learn, love and grow.
