Three wise men inspire South Carolina

On Nov. 30, Clemson University hosted Eboo Patel. He is the founder and executive director of Interfaith Youth Core, which links young people of many faiths in cooperative service and shared experience. After addressing groups all day, Patel joined the evening celebration of 80 years of Catholic campus ministry at Clemson. He spoke of the […]


Heritage celebration addresses the tough issues of race

CHARLESTON—Five words might not seem like a lot in the fight against the tide of racism and hatred. They are a beginning, though, a small and simple one that Bishop Edward K. Braxton of the Diocese of Belleville, Ill., gave to more than 120 people who attended the Black Catholics Heritage Celebration in Charleston Dec. […]


Day of Prayer a reminder to turn to God in stressful times

People around the state took time for God recently after Gov. Nikki Haley called for a Day of Prayer. Gov. Haley asked for the event be­cause of difficult times South Caro­linians have experienced. Severe flooding in the wake of Hurricane Matthew devastated many communi­ties barely a year after the record-breaking floods of 2015. Also, two racially-charged […]


Retirement Fund for Religious allows their ministry to continue

After a lifetime of serving others, retired religious need our help. The collection date for the Diocese of Charleston to give to the Retirement Fund for Religious is Dec. 11, and Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone urges everyone to share what they can. Sponsored by the National Religious Retirement Office in Washington, D.C., the appeal asks […]


Jubilee Year of Mercy closes, but works will continue

The Jubilee Year of Mercy came to an end on Nov. 20, but people are encouraged to carry its message into the future. Pope Francis called for the Year of Mercy, which began Dec. 8, 2015, as a way to spread the message around the world in a time when mercy often seems in short […]


Letter to the editor

Nov. 22, 2016 Editor: Like you, I have heard and read many articles calling for unity and healing after a very rancor-filled election season. I certainly agree that hatred and violence do nothing but destroy, separate and divide us. As Christians, we must show respect and love to all, including our enemies. But I think […]


St. Clare of Assisi continues to plan and grow

DANIEL ISLAND—St. Clare of Assisi Church has seen remarkable growth since its beginnings two and a half years ago. Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone es­tablished the new parish in early 2014 and the first Mass took place that year on Easter Sunday. Since then, membership has surged to 1,900, due in large part to people moving into […]


Stewardship conference taps into hopes and expectations

CHARLESTON—The Stewardship Confer­ence held at the Diocese of Charles­ton Pastoral Center was a spiritually moving experience for the almost 140 people who attended. They sang, they laughed, they cried; and not once did anyone ask for money. This — collections as the primary purpose of stewardship — is a major misperception, and one that the […]


40 Days for Life bus tour includes rally in Charleston

CHARLESTON—Recognizing the urgency for ending America’s abortion crisis, 40 Days for Life launched an unprecedented 40-day bus tour to bring its message of hope to cities and towns across the United States that are joined in prayer and fasting during this fall’s UNITED 40 Days for Life campaign, which was held Sept. 28 to Nov.

About 90 clergy, women religious and laity from the Charleston and Charlotte dioceses took part in a workshop at Cardinal Newman School to learn how to begin the Encuentro process. The meeting […]
