Founder Reflections

Hello Carolina Catholic Family.
Over the past few weeks we have seen a dramatic increase in our faith community working with us to showcase many wonderful events and news makers happening in our parishes, schools and ministries.
This gives me great hope and encouragement for the role this apostolate can play in the future for our Carolina Catholic Community.

With that comes the reality check of how do we financially prepare for 2023 after a two year pandemic and current economic downturn.
That being said, we are earnestly preparing for the most important pledge drive in our 4 year history. It will begin on All Saints Day and conclude on the Feast of Mary Mother of God (11/1-1/1).
Based on the pledges we receive during this time from parish tithing, business underwriting, program sponsorships and individual donations, we will know what Carolina Catholic Media will look like in 2023. Will we be 7 media platforms or will we be forced to downsize? The answer is up to you.
Please reach out and let me know how we’re doing and what role you can play in the future of your local Carolina Catholic Media Voice.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration to join us in evangelizing the Truth of Jesus Christ and our Catholic Faith across the Carolinas. I look forward to hearing from you.  May God Bless you abundantly.
Yours in Christ,


David M. Papandrea, OFS

  • NEW PROGRAM!  The SENSUS FIDELIUM HOUR with Steve Cunningham, Tuesdays 5pm- “Why is the Fatima devotion important? If we do not know the ‘why’ behind any devotion then we won’t care to do them.
