In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God. . . —John 1:1
Remember when you first read God’s Word? Remember when you first understood the Christian message? The Diocesan Periodical Club (DPC) spreads the printed word of God by helping pay for Bibles, prayer books, text books, and other printed materials needed for the mission and ministries supported by the Diocese of South Carolina.
A Message from Vicky Sheedy, our Diocesan Periodical Club Chairman
I have the privilege of serving as chairman of the Diocesan Periodical Club and want to remind everyone who we are, what we do, and why we need your support. The purpose of the Diocesan Periodical Club is to spread the printed word of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Books for our Seminarians
We send money to our seminarians to help them purchase text books. These are struggling times, I know; but there are several parishes represented throughout the Diocese by students at seminary. These books are expensive, and our seminarians struggle! Please remember them and make your contributions count!!!
Miles of Pennies Fund
We also purchase children’s books through our Miles of Pennies fund; we buy prayer books, Bibles, and other teaching tools for missions that are supported by our Diocese.
The Printed Word
We try to help spread the printed word of our Lord and Saviour by distributing Bibles in English and different languages.
The traditional Periodical Club Sunday is the third Sunday in September. Please pray about this and think of ways to collect money as well as take up collections in church. We don’t have envelopes; but you can use plain envelopes and collect the money on any Sunday you choose.
All of our churches have benefited by contributions to this fund! Once you’ve made your collection, make your checks payable to
Diocese of South Carolina, noting DPC in the subject line, and mail them to
Diocesan Periodical Club

Jesus tells us to go out into the world and spread the good news to all people. All of us are not able to go, but we can all help others by donating funds to purchase books that spread the word.
If you have any questions, please contact me (803) 854-3217 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you and God bless you all!
Yours in Christ,
Vicky Sheedy, Diocesan Periodical Club Chairman
