    Mary B - Fun Nun Bowl 

    Thank You

    Thanks to all of you and many others, Fun Nun Bowl VII was a success again this year.  Not only that, but it was a great time.  Thanks also to Shane Griffin for being our MC, Catholic Radio in SC for their support and everyone who helped make it possible.

    We still need several sponsors to send their sponsors checks, so if you have not done so, please do as soon as possible (address below). We hope to get our beneficiaries paid before year end and we can only do that if we get all of the payments in.

    The Winners

    Congratulations to “The Men’s Emmaus” team, who I believe won for the 3rd time in the last four years. Looks like a “dynasty” is brewing….Even more impressive now that we have been in the bigger bowling alley the last two years.  Last year’s champ, “Mama Kim’s” finished 3rd and John Carroll’s “Wednesday Wisdom” team finished second and has high hopes for next year. Major props to Leo Albano, who flew back in from South Bend on Sunday morning in time to participate in the Fun Nun Bowl again with his Men’s Emmaus squad.

    Sponsor Payments / Mailing Address 
    For those who have not done so, please mail checks to:

    Lucis Via Charities
    410 Mill Street, Suite 101
    Mt Pleasant, SC 29464

    Once we collect everything, we believe we’ll again be in the ballpark of $10,000-$11,000 in proceeds.  If you were not able to join us in person, we hope to see you next time for Fun Nun Bowl VIII.

    Mary B - Bring FM Catholic Radio to BEHS - Catholic Radio in SC 

    Bringing FM to BE:  During the 2018-19 school year Bishop England High School (BEHS) has a unique opportunity to establish its own Low Power FM radio station.  Relying on technical assistance from Catholic Radio in South Carolina, BEHS will be the license holder and Catholic Radio in South Carolina will provide tailored programming for the BEHS and Charleston community.  With a broadcast antenna and transmitter maintained by Catholic Radio in South Carolina, FM Catholic Radio at BEHS will have clear radio signal coverage encompassing most of metro Charleston.

    Once in place, Catholic Radio in South Carolina will provide ongoing technical support to enable the BEHS-FM station to develop its own radio programming.  These programs may include student-produced shows, musical performances, and sporting events.  BEHS-FM will become a cultural complement and media resource for sustaining and promoting the Catholic community of Charleston.

    Catholic Radio in South Carolina:  Catholic Radio in South Carolina, Mediatrix, SC, Inc. has grown in response to Pope John Paul II’s call for a “New Evangelization.”  In 2003 a group of faithful lay Catholics established Mediatrix SC, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation.  Mediatrix currently broadcasts Catholic content on WLTQ 730-AM in Charleston and WCKI 1300-AM in Greer/Greenville.  With the permission of Bishop Robert Guglielmone, in 2013, Catholic Radio in South Carolina began assisting Catholic schools across the state in establishing school-based Low Power FM stations.  Currently, seven Low Power FM stations are in operation.

    You Can Help:   The one-time start-up, equipment, and licensing and two-years of operating expenses amount to a very modest $50,000.  We are asking friends of Bishop England, families, alumni, and Catholics across Charleston to join us in bringing FM to BE.  We are currently seeking pledges for this project.  If you are able to provide support for this project, please e-mail Frank Dirks.

    Imagine turning the radio dial and…

    • Listening to stories of faith produced by BEHS students and featuring BE students and alumni
    • Listening musical performances by BEHS students
    • Listening to BEHS sports
    • Listening to lessons of faith offered by the clergy and religious in Charleston

    Imagine a Catholic community radio resource as vibrant as the place it calls home.

    Help bring FM Catholic Radio to Bishop England!

    Mary B - CCP on Flickr - Fall Fellowship Dinner 

    Thank you to all who attended and supported our Fall Fellowship Dinner with Conor Gallagher last night!  Check out some pics on our Flickr site!

    Mary B - CCP Event - Conor Gallagher 

    Join us for an evening of Catholic Christian fellowship, faith, and ideas on October 25, 2018.  Mr. Conor Gallagher will share his lecture, “Still Amidst the Storm” followed by a dinner.

    In Mark’s Gospel (4:37-41) we see the apostles trapped in a mighty storm and their fishing boats on the bring of capsizing. And Jesus slept. This confused, scared,
    and even angered the apostles who could not fight back the storm. Author, CEO and father of twelve, Mr. Conor Gallagher, relates this short passage to the anxieties of modern life. The chaos of our lives and the demands of those with whom we live and work can leave us feeling as helpless as those apostles in the boat. The world, however, only offers fake solutions to these real problems: over-medication, spurts of carnal pleasure, and “time management” techniques that never suffice.

    Conor Gallagher looks to three remedies that underlie all others: First, encountering God in the present moment while avoiding past resentment and future
    anxiety; second, listening to the voice of God only found in exterior and interior silence amidst the constant drum of deafening noise; and third, resting in serene
    stillness as the stir-crazy spirit of the world goes by.

    Mr. Conor Gallagher earned both his Masters in Philosophy and Juris Doctoris from The Catholic University of America. He began his professional career as a law clerk to the Honorable Robert J. Conrad, Chief Judge of the Western District of North Carolina. He has been an adjunct Professor of Philosophy and Political Philosophy at Belmont Abbey College, and is currently the Executive Director of the Benedict Leadership Institute at Belmont Abbey College.  He is also Publisher of Saint Benedict Press and TAN Books.  He and his wife Ashley, are the proud parents of twelve wonderful children (all homeschooled!!).

    Saint Benedict Press is a Catholic publisher that helps parishes, dioceses, and Catholic schools engage parishioners and lead them into a deeper and more active Catholic faith. Our products and programs are developed with one primary goal: to help people become saints. We publish Bibles, ministry resources, Sacramental and Catechist gifts, informative, entertaining, and state-of-the-art video programs from today’s Catholic experts on a variety of topics.

    Our name pays tribute to the guiding influence of the Benedictine monks of Belmont Abbey, a short distance from our headquarters in Charlotte, NC. Our mission is to reflect the charisms of joy, spiritual development, zeal and fraternal charity.

    Saint Benedict Press publishes under several imprints, including TAN Books.

    Since its founding, TAN Books has been committed to the preservation and promotion of the spiritual, theological and liturgical traditions of the Roman Catholic Church. TAN Books publishes over 500 titles on Thomistic theology, traditional devotions, Church doctrine, history, lives of the saints, educational resources, and more. All designed to help you Become a Saint.
