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.

It is time for each of us to support

Catholic Radio

in South Carolina

We need Catholic Radio because our communities need Catholic Radio, and now, more than ever, Catholic Radio needs us!

Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.

1 Peter 3:15

Our culture today is in desperate need of "the way, the truth, and the life," that is Christ Jesus.  Catholic Radio is the means by which anyone with a radio, a smart phone, or a computer modem can hear the Good News of the Gospel at any time of the day or night.

If we, as people of faith wish to do our part for souls thirsting for the water that only Jesus can give, "the water welling up to eternal life" (John 4:14) then we must support one of the greatest evangelization tools of our age.  We must support Catholic Radio!

It's not enough to listen, we must give.  Sirius is not local Catholic Radio.  EWTN does not support financially local radio networks.  Catholic Radio in South Carolina can only survive if we the Catholics and Christians of South Carolina support it.

Catholic Radio in South Carolina is desperate need of our support.  The pandemic has placed a severe burden on their already threadbare operations.  Catholic Radio needs each of us, now!

Please, support Catholic Radio!

Voices from the Community

The vast majority of souls that leave the Catholic Church do so during their late teens and early twenties, which are also for many, the college years. Emma Kate Lively, a Catholic campus missionary for FOCUS, has been called to do something about this. Please take a few moments to watch Emma Kate’s story from the trenches of today’s spiritual warfare. She shares her faith journey and her service as a witness to the Good News of the Gospel and the gift of grace found in the Sacraments of the Catholic Church. Emma Kate’s mission is supported by the charity of others, so please, take a few moments to watch her testimony and learn why it is more important than ever to carry the truth of Christ to young people today.

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.

The Saint John Cemetery Memorial Project

The Saint John Cemetery in the heart of Charleston has been overlooked for far too long.  The consecrated ground holding the earthly remains as many as one thousand souls is a place that deserves the attention of our lay Catholic community.  We share a duty to make this resting place for our departed Catholic brothers and sisters a holy place of remembrance and prayer.

Carolina Catholic Professionals have made the Saint John Cemetery Memorial Project our priority endeavor.

Recently, Doris Hazel, a retired teacher and life-long Charlestonian shared her story of faith and family as an African-American Catholic growing up in the Jim-Crow South. Ms. Hazel has been a leader in the effort to bring attention and a proper memorial to the Saint John Cemetery.

Sister Pamela Smith discusses her new book, State of Grace: A History of the Diocese of Charleston.  Her book highlights the role of the laity in building the Church in South Carolina.  During the discussion she suggests that lay Catholics today may want to draw inspiration from these leaders in the past.

First Friday Networking Event

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.

Until circumstances change we will conduct our First Friday gatherings virtually via Zoom. Our Frist Friday events will run from 12 - 1pm
