Preparing for Sunday

June 25: Bishop Guerry Day in our Diocese

The Episcopal Church in South Carolina will remember William Alexander Guerry as Bishop, Reformer and Martyr on Sunday, June 25, as the diocese continues to share the remarkable story of our 8th Bishop.

Our congregations will be encouraged to use readings and prayers for Bishop Guerry's feast day. 
Printable resources are available here.

Bishop Guerry died June 9, 1928, five days after being shot in his office by a priest who had attacked the bishop’s position on advancing racial equality in South Carolina, and his proposal to install a black suffragan bishop in the diocese. The priest then took his own life. Bishop Guerry, in the hospital before he died, said of his assailant, “Forgive him, Father, he knew not what he did.”
