Spearheaded by the four enthusiastic H&S officers — President Liesl Westbrook, […]


A eucharistic transformation

There is an anomaly between the nourishment of our natural and supernatural lives. The natural food we consume is transformed into our body and blood. The supernatural nourishment of the body and blood of Christ should transform us into him. Such a grace is emphasized in sacramental theology: “The Eucharist immediately effects man’s union with […]


In its search for answers, a society needs the church’s contributions

How can a society find answers to its deep questions? Questions about what a human person is, about marriage and family life? Questions about social issues relating to peace, the economy and justice?

Bishop promotes the use of the Christ Candle during Christmas season

Poor Clares trying to raise funds for a new monastery

GREENVILLE — The Poor Clare sisters of South Carolina have a problem. They live in a monastery that is a 50-year-old relic of a 17th century design. It’s a warren of long, narrow passageways and convoluted, linoleum floored rooms emptying into one another like the thieves’ holes in “Oliver Twist.” It’s too big, too hard […]
