Three More Diocese of S.C. Parishes Join in Suit to Prevent TEC from Seizing Property

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Support increased again for the Diocese of South Carolina’s fight to prevent The Episcopal Church (TEC) from hijacking more than $500 million in local property as three new parishes joined the suit, bringing the total number of congregations supporting the litigation to 34.

The amended complaint also added as a defendant The Episcopal Church in South Carolina, the name adopted by parishes that remain aligned with TEC, which previously had been the only defendant in the suit.

The three parishes named in the amended complaint filed with the South Carolina Circuit Court are St. Jude's, Walterboro; Trinity, Pinopolis, and Church of the Holy Cross, Stateburg.
