PAWLEYS ISLAND - The bishop of the Episcopal Church is attending an educational conference in South Carolina, as is the president of the church's House of Deputies.

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and House of Deputies President Gay Clark Jennings are keynote speakers at the event being held on Saturday at Holy Cross Faith Memorial Episcopal Church in Pawleys Island. The conference is titled "Enthusiastically Episcopalian in South Carolina."

The Episcopal Church in the state has been rent by schism. In 2012, a group of conservative churches split with the church.

Saturday's meeting is sponsored by the Episcopal Forum, a group that supports The Episcopal Church in South Carolina, a diocese of more 30 parishes, missions, and worship communities that has remained with the larger denomination.
