The Joys of Discovering a "New" Charleston Church and Graveyard!

St. Mary of the Annunciation Catholic Church on Huger Street in downtown Charleston is hardly new, but to me attending Mass there yesterday, then walking through the small but impressive graveyard, was a new and exciting "find" and experience.

St. Mary's address is 89 Hasell St,. near King Street
The history page on the church's website boasts that St. Mary's is the "mother church of Catholicism in the Carolinas and Georgia."

Its establishment dates to 1789 when it was called the Roman Catholic Church of Charleston.

Mass still takes place inside the elegant Greek Revival structure, but only once a weekend, Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
