Crozier Society offers a special way to join the Bishop as he leads his flock. Members of the Crozier Society support the Bishop’s Annual Appeal with an annual gift of $1,000 or above.

The crozier is a walking staff and a symbol of the pastoral care entrusted to the Bishop. The top of the staff is curved like a shepherd’s crook to remind the Bishop of his pastoral duties towards the people entrusted to him through Christ.

As a Bishop leans on his crozier for support, he also leans on Crozier Society members as they take a leadership role in helping the Bishop carry out the mission of the Diocese of Charleston – to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to support those in need within our diocese.

Members recognize that importance of faithful philanthropy. Through generous support at leadership levels, you support the essential ministries that serve the spiritual, educational, and charitable needs of our brothers and sisters.
