Our Lady of Grace Church - Lancaster, SC

A few years ago, Henninger's installed two marble altars, a marble ambo, and marble baptismal font at St. Philip Neri Church in Fort Mill, SC.  Those pieces of furniture were created from new and used marble from Henninger's warehouse.  Under the guidance of pastor, Rev. John Guiliani, St. Philip Neri sponsors a Mission Church: Our Lady of Grace.  Located in Indian Land, SC, (about 15 miles southeast of St. Philip Neri, Our Lady of Grace was established as a Catholic Community and Mission Church in 2008.

Our Lady of Grace's first mass in February, 2008 had an attendance of about 250.  It didn't take long for the church to outgrow its first worship space.  In the last 8 years, the congregation has grown to 360 families with weekend masses drawing more than 400.

Since Fr. Guiliani worked with Henninger's at St. Philip Neri, it was an easy decision to use our team for Our Lady of Grace.  Old marble was selected from our warehouse, along with metalware, and Stations of the Cross.

Designs were drawn up and plans were made.

Statues were selected from our catalog:

Our crew traveled to South Carolina for the installation after July 4th, 2016.  The install took about one week.


Our Lady of Grace's new church will seat approximately 650 people, have nine multi-purpose rooms, a kitchen, offices for staff and a large multi-purpose room for parish events. Its dedication is scheduled for August 15 on the Feast of the Solemnity of Mary.
