The Reconciliation of a Penitent

Lent is a time of discernment, prayer, preparation and the taking on of a spiritual discipline as we remember the events leading up to and including the death of Jesus the Christ.


The 40 days of Lent is a good time to take the opportunity to avail oneself of the individual Confession/Reconciliation of a Penitent.


If you are interested in individual Confession/Reconciliation of a Penitent, please speak to Father Glenn in person or contact Father Glenn at 803-319-5296/ .

Wednesday, February 21st from 8:30-10am: Father Glenn will host “Ramblings with the Rector” at the Dunkin Donuts down the street from the church. We’ll get together for coffee and casual conversation about any topic folks want to discuss.

The Holy Comforter Men’s Group meets Friday, February 23rd at 7:30am at That Flippin’ Egg, 4466 Washington Road in Evans. All are welcome! 

Kairos Prison Ministry

For several years, Holy Comforter has supported the Kairos Prison Ministry at Leath Correctional Facility for Women. Because Covid 19 prohibited volunteers from entering prisons, Kairos was not able to hold any weekend retreats since 2018. 

I am thrilled to report that in May our Kairos team will resume taking God's love inside the razor wire. To do this, we are asking for your support. Even if you cannot go inside, there are many ways to be on our team and "visit the prisoner".  

If you would like to become a member of the Kairos volunteer team or would like to learn more about how you can support the team, contact Linda Bargeron at or text at 706-267-8668.  

Love God, love others.

Serve God, serve others.

Would you like to be an Usher?

Hello Holy Comforter! Looking for a way to get more involved and serve at church? Consider becoming an usher! Ushering is a great way to get to know fellow parishioners and serve the church. The time commitment is flexible (usually only one service per month or so).

If you are interested in learning more, contact Katie Shepherd via text, email or phone at 706-825-2775 or Written instructions will be provided and Katie is happy to usher with you the first time as you learn the role.

Save the Date

Our bishop, The Rt. Rev. Frank Logue, will be with us May 12, 2024. If you wish to be baptized, confirmed, or received, contact the church office at 706-210-1133. 


What is confirmation? If you were baptized as a child, you may wish to make an adult profession of your faith. In the Episcopal Church, this is done through the sacrament of Confirmation. Confirmation is the sacramental rite in which a person "expresses a mature commitment to Christ, and receives strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop" (BCP, p. 860). 


What is reception? Reception is for those who have already made an adult profession of their faith in another Christian church and wish to continue their journey in the Episcopal Church. During reception, the candidate is “received” into the Episcopal church.
