Serve the Lord and be responsible, says Alveda King

GREENVILLE—Alveda King pulled few punches and used candid illustrations from her own life as she talked about abortion and birth control to a group of around 200 who gathered early Nov. 19 for a pro-life day of reflection at St. Mary Church. It was part of the the 40 Days for Life campaign, a worldwide […]

St. Peter Chapel in Beaufort commemorates historic anniversary

BEAUFORT—Members of St. Peter Church are working to preserve two important parts of South Carolina Catholic history. The Chapel of St. Peter’s, built in 1846, and its cemetery sit on a quiet corner of Carteret Street in downtown Beaufort, shaded by live oaks and palmetto trees.  


Parents who have suffered the loss of a child encouraged to talk

ROCK HILL—When a child dies, parents need to be encouraged to talk about the loss and celebrate their son or daughter’s life, not told simply to “get on with life” or that their loss was God’s will. “The pain and hurt we feel is real, it may dull over time but will always be there,” […]

Father Ernest Hepner celebrates his 50th jubilee

AIKEN-Nearly every morning, Father Ernest Hepner goes for a two-mile walk in a subdivision near his home. There, residents out with their dogs greet him. They all know Father Ernie, and so do the canines. He carries a duffel bag full of treats for the dogs, and in October even held an impromptu pet blessing […]


Penn State scandal a reminder for awareness

SIMPSONVILLE—Facilitator Joe Maggio says the skills he teaches in the Virtus awareness sessions he frequently conducts have valuable applications both inside and outside the Catholic Church — and some of those applications seemed ripped from today’s headlines. One of those is the current scandal at Penn State University — arisen from charges that longtime assistant […]
