The LORD will guide you always and satisfy your thirst in parched places, will give strength to your bones and you shall be like a watered garden, like a flowing spring whose waters never fail. – Isaiah 58:11

A garden represents the Body of Christ. It offers us spiritual nourishment and relaxation as we strive to ensure that the beauty of his works can grow, much like the flowers of a garden. As part of the Catholic Appeal of South Carolina, we invite you to join us in tilling the fertile soil and admiring the good fruits through being good stewards of his blessings.

Members of His Garden Society, formerly the Crozier Society, 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 state.

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

Members support the Catholic Appeal of South Carolina with an annual gift of $1,500 or more or a recurring monthly gift. We sincerely thank you for your generosity!
