​We welcome infants and children into the church through the sacramental waters of baptism.   Please call the church office to schedule a Baptism or to attend a Baptismal Preparation Meeting  803-779-0036.  Godparents are also welcome.  Registration is required.

The Sacrament of Marriage is a sacred union formed by God between husband and wife.  A Marriage Coordinator is available to help an engaged couple to prepare for their  marriage in the Church. It is a requirement of the Diocese that the instruction and preparation begin six months prior to the wedding.  To begin the preparation for marriage, please ​look over our extensive wedding page, and then contact the church office if you desire a Catholic Wedding at Saint Peter's.



First Communion, First Reconciliation and Confirmation

Children in Saint Peter's prepare for First Communion, reconciliation and Confirmation through the program of religious education.   Adults who wish to prepare for the sacraments can contact Donna Tomasini to see which program in Adult Formation will best help them on their way.  The sacraments are a wonderful gift from God, and we hope to make it as easy as possible for you to avail yourself of them.


God continually invites us to go further on our journey with Him.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation offers us the chance to examine our conscience, to confess our sins to Him through the priest and receive absolution. Saint Peter's offers you the chance to partake of this wonderful Sacrament every Saturday at 4 pm.  If it has been a long time since you have availed yourself of the sacrament and you would like help preparing please contact the Church office.  


Anointing of the sick 

if a member of your family is ill and wants to receive the sacrament to strengthen them, please let the parish know.  Hospitals are no longer allowed to inform us, so we must rely on you to reach us so we can offer this Sacrament.  Please contact the Parish office and tell them that you, or a loved one, are in need of this sacrament and how to reach you.

Holy Orders

If you feel within you the quiet call from God to devote your life to Him in a special and unique way through the religious life, the diocese of Charleston offers support on the journey of discernment.  
Please contact the diocese vocation office to find more information.
