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.

Sacred Heart begins its 50th year

GAFFNEY — It’s the kind of parish where even the ushers are in shirtsleeves for Sunday Mass.

There are 225 registered […]
