    Worship & COVID-19 Update:

    The vestry and clergy of Calvary Episcopal Church remain vigilant in monitoring current data relating to COVID-19 that impacts how we worship safely for all who gather. The vestry and clergy consult with local healthcare experts in the greater Charleston area and review data issued by COVID Act Now weekly. COVID Act Now is a group that assesses community risk levels for infection for every state, county, and metro in the United States, in conjunction with the Center for Disease Control, to help people make informed decisions about health risks associated with public gathering. 

    On January 23, 2023 the community risk level for Charleston, South Carolina was lowered from “Medium” to "Low", as the risk level for the entire State of South Carolina has recently been lowered to “Low”. So long as the risk assessment remains “Medium” or “Low”, masks will not be required for worship at Calvary. However, as the winter months also bring increased risk of viral infection and flu, we urge everyone to take whatever precautions they feel are necessary when worshiping at Calvary. As a community of the baptized, who respect the dignity of every human being, we encourage each of you to follow your own conscience about what is best for you and your health, given your individual circumstance. Please feel free to wear a mask if you choose and be assured no one will judge you for doing so. In fact, wearing a mask, if your conscience so dictates, is a way of loving your neighbor as yourself. Rest assured the vestry and clergy of Calvary will continue to monitor changing conditions and will modify this current policy if warranted. 

    We are welcoming groups to rent our Parish Hall for meetings and events. Email the parish for more details:
