Bishop Guglielmone urges Catholics to stand fast for liberty

CHARLESTON—Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone delivered a Fortnight for Freedom homily during Mass that elicited a loud round of applause.

Retirement is just another opportunity to serve for pair of clerics

HILTON HEAD—Msgr. Donald Horak and Father Edward Bell will return to their home dioceses after seven years of ministry at Holy Family Church. What is unusual about their work on the island is that the two 75-year-olds originally came to retire. But that didn’t mean taking a break from their ministry. “They never say no,” […]


Home Works: Help with a hammer

CHARLESTON—Water stains on the ceiling of her small home remind Susan Tyler every day of the peace Home Works has given her.

Workshop focuses on trends in teaching faith to youth

COLUMBIA—The old way of doing things won’t cut it anymore when it comes to teaching  adolescents and teens about their faith. Youth, who spend their days immersed in technology and an increasingly secular culture, won’t get what they need from a few Scripture study sessions and general discussions about the sacraments. And many of them […]


An unjust law is no law at all: Praying for religious liberty

CHARLESTON—Hundreds of people raised their voices in a demand for religious freedom during a rally at the U.S. Custom House in Charleston. Another was held in Greenville, and about 160 other cities nationwide.

Mission trip brings change for both served and serving

A group of 21 young adults is gearing up for a trip that could change their lives. It isn’t far in geographical terms — just a short jaunt to the Mustard Seed Community in Kingston, Jamaica — but spiritually speaking, it is worlds away.
