Decree Amalgamating the Personal Parish of St. Cyprian, Georgetown, South Carolina, with St. Mary, Our Lady of Ransom Parish, Georgetown, South Carolina

Protocol No. 2018003 In 1949, the Personal Parish of St. Cyprian in Georgetown, South Carolina, was established to serve the spiritual welfare of the black Catholic Faithful of Georgetown County, South Carolina. Since its erection, the Faithful have heard the Word of God, worshiped, and received the Sacraments of the Church within this personal parish. Over the past decade, a marked decline has been noted in parishioner numbers as well as sacraments received. In an effort to ensure the vitality of parish life, with concern for the best stewardship of resources, and the right of the people of God to receive assistance from the Church, especially the Word of God, spiritual sustenance, and the sacraments, it is now deemed necessary to begin a new chapter for St. Cyprian’s presence in Georgetown while establishing revised provisions for the spiritual care of its parishioners.
