Community memorializes 9-11 victims

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH — Droning bagpipes, an overcast sky and a looming ladder truck accented a special Mass held at Our Lady Star of the Sea to memorialize the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. As fire chief Tom Barstow talked with parish member Ed Vaitis before the service, a man walked into […]


Greenhaws gave it all up to deliver the Word

GREENVILLE — Lloyd and Nancy Greenhaw spoke to 50,000 people at one time in Rwanda a few months ago, yet they expended as much energy holding a mission for less than 100 a night at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish on the weekend of Oct. 15-17. “The folks here are so friendly,” Lloyd Greenhaw […]

St. Joseph choir goes to Carnegie Hall

Sacred Heart begins its 50th year

GAFFNEY — It’s the kind of parish where even the ushers are in shirtsleeves for Sunday Mass. People are familiar with each other, talk to each other’s kids and act generally as if they are one big family. Of course, “big” is a relative term when talking about Sacred Heart Church. There are 225 registered […]


Literacy program takes off in Georgetown County

GEORGETOWN — This story about good people begins with one woman making a phone call.

Father Titus Fulcher leads Greek Catholics

CHARLESTON — When Father Titus Fulcher made the decision to “come home to the Catholic church” from the Eastern Orthodox church, he never imagined that he would be leading a small group of parishioners in worship each Sunday.
