Discovering a new route on road of life

By MARY HOOD HART Like most mothers of school-age children, I spend a lot of time on the road. My van is less than two years old, and its odometer reads over 50,000 miles. Most of those miles were accumulated traveling back and forth on a long stretch of Highway 17. Most of those miles […]


Bishop bids a fond farewell in Charleston

By NANCY CZABALA CHARLESTON — As parishioners filled the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Sunday, Nov. 1, for the 11 a.m. Mass, they were not just coming to worship, but to extend a prayer of gratitude for Bishop David B. Thompson at a Mass of Thanksgiving. After traveling around the diocese and celebrating […]

The Church leaders called for “a moratorium on […]

We should keep in mind that God has a great destiny in store for every child he creates.” — Louise Summerhill, founder of Birthright and author of The Story of Birthright: The Alternative to Abortion. CHARLESTON — Birthright […]


Artist’s wood work is crafted to support children in need

By HOLLY GATLING COLUMBIA — On each carved cross the hanging corpus evokes disturbing images of agony. Christ’s deadweight, tormented body sags forward, his fists clenched against the spikes through his palms. His arms stretch upward to their excruciating anatomical limits. His knees splay and his impaled feet droop in a gesture of utter helplessness. […]


Bishop says farewell at deanery celebrations

The Bishop is a man of his people. Bishop David B. Thompson could have stayed in Charleston, said his farewell Mass at the Cathedral and then retired. Instead, he chose to visit different cities in the diocese and say his good-byes to his people at their home parishes. In the Pee Dee Deanery, Bishop Thompson […]
