The man who helped establish a new church in Okatie will soon visit the congregation for the last time ahead of his retirement.

The Rt. Rev. Charles G. vonRosenberg, Bishop Provisional of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina, will make his annual visit to The Episcopal Church in Okatie at 9:00 a.m. Sunday, May 8.

The visit precedes vonRosenberg’s second retirement – he orginially retired as Third Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of East Tennessee in 2011 before being installed in his current role in 2013.

One of the hallmarks of his leadership was his guidance during the establishment of The Episcopal Church in Okatie.

All are welcome to celebrate vonRosenberg’s visit with the Okatie congregation. A reception will follow the service.

The church is located in the Hazzard Creek Village along Highway 170 in Okatie, directly across from the Beaufort/Jasper/Hampton Comprehensive Health Services complex.
