Welcome Pilgrims

Thank you to all of the parishioners who supported and prayed for the four youths and two chaperones on their pilgrimage to World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow, Poland.  The youths blogged and sent pictures and videos to the Island Packet each day.  If you are interested in seeing all any of the days of the blog or our pictures, please click on this link and it will take you directly to the Island Packet site.


If you have any questions or would like to contact our youth minister, Hector Morales, please e-mail him at  You can also contact him via phone at (843)681-6350 x236.

Interested in volunteering?  Have you considered the CORE TEAM?

The CORE TEAM is a community of adults who choose to respond to their baptismal call by serving young people.  St. Francis youth ministry relies heavily on the time (from 5 – 7 hours a week) and talent of adults within the parish community who desire to share their faith, as well as to provide an example of one who lives the faith.  The team also assists the Youth Minister in various ways, such as:  leading small groups, providing a talk/testimony, keeping the order, etc.
