Holy Cross Cemetery undergoes a make-over

CHARLESTON—Major changes are afoot at Holy Cross Cemetery.

Catholic-Jewish convocation held at St. Francis by the Sea

HILTON HEAD ISLAND—Rabbi Brad Bloom reminded a crowd at St. Francis by the Sea Church of a solemn anniver­sary dating back 79 years.

Youth urged to remember they’re ‘beloved children of God, called by name’

INDIANAPOLIS—The sound of more than 20,000 teens screaming and singing along with racuous music of Christian hip-hop band TobyMac was loud.

WHITE OAK—Meredith Clemmens’ Road to Emmaus led her back to an all-too-familiar place. Ten years ago, Clemmens was one of several hundred students at the Diocese of Charleston’s Junior High Rally listening to guest speakers share their faith and offer encour­agement and inspiration to the young audience.

Catholic leaders urge Trump to return U.S. to leading role on climate

WASHINGTON—The United States must resume its leadership role in addressing climate change, dozens of Catholic leaders wrote in a letter to President Donald Trump. “On behalf of people who are poor and vulnerable and future generations, we especially ask that you act based upon the best available climate science,” 161 leaders said in the Nov.

‘Invest in love,’ pope says on first World Day of the Poor

VATICAN CITY—People have a basic choice in the way they live: either striving to build up treasures on earth or giving to others in order to gain heaven, Pope Francis said. “What we invest in love remains, the rest vanishes,” the pope said in his homily Nov. 19, the first World Day of the Poor. […]
