Carolina Catholic Professionals

Professional and business individuals sharing the Good News of the Gospel through word and works.


Carolina Catholic Professionals is a membership organization associated with Lucis Via Charities, Inc., a Charleston-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

We serve to share the Good News of the Gospel through word and works by defending the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, providing a spiritual refuge for Catholic Laity and Christian believers, encouraging a rigorous intellectual and Godly examination of ideas, and providing Christ-informed service and charity to the community.

Our motto is Humanitas Christi: Christ’s People. We are joined in communion through our shared Catholic Christian faith and our calling to bear witness to the Gospel in the way we live our lives. We are Christ’s people encountering the world.

Thanks be to God, for the last year we have sought to proclaim the Gospel in the way we live our lives

To survive in today's secularized world, Catholics must be courageous in professing their faith. They must be courageous in living their faith. Today's world, surely our American world, needs courageous Catholics. - Fr. John A. Hardon

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 

Galatians 3:27-28

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

We humbly ask you to join us

We are a network of Catholics and Christians across the greater Charleston community.

We support our Church

We support each other

We bear witness to the Gospel in the way we live our lives.

We stand together in quiet defiance to a culture that increasingly aspires to live without God.

We are comfortably, confidently Catholic

First Friday Networking Event

Our theme for these gatherings is how we engage the world in faith and bear witness to the Gospel in the way we live our lives.  With one foot in the Church and one in the world we are all on the same journey.  We ask our speakers to discuss their personal journey of faith and their work in the world and what they see to be meaningful trends and developments in our community, state, and nation.
