LEADERSHIP & REFERENCE
Saint Mary of the Annunciation was established as the first parish of the Diocese of Charleston in 1820, under the leadership of its first bishop, the Right Reverend John England. Since then, new dioceses have been formed from the original territory: Savannah, Raleigh, Atlanta, and Charlotte. Today, the Diocese of Charleston encompasses the entire state of South Carolina.
Visit www.sccatholic.org for information about the diocese and its parishes, to read statements and other writings from the bishop, and to find upcoming diocesan events. The Catholic Miscellany, the first Catholic publication in the United States, is the diocesan newspaper.
The USCCB is an assembly of the hierarchy of the United States and the U.S. Virgin Islands who jointly exercise certain pastoral functions on behalf of the Christian faithful of the United States.
Visit usccb.org to learn more about Church teachings, practices, current programs, and projects in the United States. Both the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults (a study version) are available to read for free online.
The Vatican, or as it is more properly know, the Holy See, is the spiritual and administrative center of the worldwide Catholic Church. It is from here, the world's smallest country, that the Supreme Pontiff, the Pope, shepherds the more than one billion Catholics across the globe (with the assistance of various administrative departments).
Visit the Vatican website to read papal documents and addresses, to tour the Vatican City State, and to learn more about the Church's work to share the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
