Mary sets the example at Respect Life Conference

COLUMBIA—It was only appropriate that the Diocese of Charles­ton’s 2017 Respect Life Conference be named for Mary, the mother of God. Commemorating the 100th anniver­sary of the Marian apparitions in Fatima, “Mary: Patroness of the Vulnerable — Blessed Mother’s Wit­ness to Love and Life”, kicked off the 40 Days for Life campaign Sept. 16 at […]

Encuentro seeks to integrate Hispanic/Latino cultures

COLUMBIA—With evangelization as its primary objective, V En­cuentro turned to a landmark document as the blueprint for its efforts. A four-year national pro­gram geared toward engag­ing Hispanic Catholics, the Encuentro, or “meeting,” held Aug. 12 at Cardinal Newman School centered on the vision of Pope Francis as written in his 2013 apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium […]


A church history borne from Irish immigrants

Editor’s Note: This is the first of two articles on the history of Irish immigrants in South Carolina. Often, when people think of Ireland, they automatically think of Irish saints and the Catholic faith. There is perhaps no country except Italy whose history and identity is so enmeshed with the Church in the imagination and […]

It was more of a spiritual boot camp, designed to prepare new youth leaders and volunteers — and those just seeking […]
