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.

This Year’s Beneficiaries

The Sisters of Saint Michael the Archangel-Saint Clare Home of Joyful Hope

The Saint Clare Home is a maternity home for women who find themselves in a crisis pregnancy with no other options and no other place to go.  It is open to women eighteen and older and will accommodate children as old as five years.    

The Neighborhood House

Our Lady of Mercy Outreach Providing food, clothing, and life- and job-skills guidance for souls in need in downtown Charleston.


Camp Rise Above

Melkite Greek Catholic Diocese of Zahle in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon

This Catholic community has a special connection to the Lebanese community of Charleston.  Sadly, our brothers and sisters in Christ in Lebanon are suffering from the effects of persecution and poverty.  We will support food and medicine for this faithful Catholic community in need.  

The Church dedicates June to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. 

The Sacred Heart embodies Jesus’s humanity and divinity: His unquenchable burning love for each us and His unfathomable divine mercy expressed through the perfect offering of his redemptive sacrifice.  In contrast to our culture that increasingly celebrates human pride and self-love, the Sacred Heart is a profound reminder of God’s humility and self-giving love.

During the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we urge you to remember that Jesus came to us in human form humbling Himself for our sake.  Pray daily the Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray the Chaplet of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, or read more about the truth, beauty, and love found in the Sacred Heart.

Carolina Catholic Professionals is pleased to make available at no charge a limited number of copies of a recently published book: 

Love Him Ever More: a nine-day personal retreat with the Sacred Heart of Jesus by Father Joe Laramie published by Ave Maria Press.

 To order a copy, please call or text 843 670 1350

Ms. Rosa's Kitchen Project

Matthew 25:45  Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.  

Thanks be to God, during four days over the first weekend in May we served our sister in Christ, Ms. Rosa. Thanks to the generous contributions, prayers, and gracious goodwill of many souls as well as support from Buck Lumber, Plugs Appliance, and Lowes Home Improvement, we reinforced and rebuilt Ms. Rosa’s buckling floor and rebuilt her kitchen.  A volunteer team of skilled craftsmen traveled from upstate South Carolina, Maryland, and Massachusetts to serve Ms. Rosa. 

Ms. Rosa was born in 1926 in rural Berkeley County, South Carolina and now lives in the Union Heights Neighborhood of North Charleston.  She is an active member of New Bethel Reformed Episcopal Church where she has worshipped for sixty-seven years.  The matriarch for her community, she sells candy, chips, and soft drinks to the neighborhood children since there are no stores for such things within a safe walk for the children and she regularly checks on and cares for her ‘elderly’ neighbors.

Moments before she arrived to see her new kitchen a rainbow formed over her home. Carolina Catholic Professionals is honored to serve God by serving others.

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

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.
