School Supplies Drive & Bookbag Blessing

The Back to School Drive has arrived again! We are so excited to once again have the opportunity to support our students and teachers in our community and parish This is our fourth year hosting the drive, thanks to your generosity and kindness. You have made such a huge difference in so many lives. This year we are adopting the students/teachers at Edith L. Frierson Elementary School on Wadmalaw Island, the girls softball team at St. Johns High School and our parish students. The school supply drive begins June 15 and ends July 14. Donations may be left at The Family Life Center, the office, in the Narthex of the church or shipped directly from Amazon.

The Parish will be having a blessing of the bookbags this summer for our parish children and youth on Wednesday, July 24 at 5:30 p.m.! We will be providing a variety of school supplies at this event for our parish students. Let us bless our parish students with some school supplies, receive a blessing for the school year and enjoy a hotdog dinner. Please register your student by emailing crescentcarevet@gmail.com. Make sure to include students name and age as well at the number attending the  dinner. This event is free for our parish families.
