Broadcasting the Truth of Jesus Christ
Feb. 9, 2023

Carolina Catholic Newsletter 02/09/2023

On January 31st   2019… Carolina Catholic Media signed on Charlotte's 1st Catholic Radio Station… AM1270 WCGC.  
By the Grace of God we celebrate the past 4 years and look forward to continuing our Apostolic Vision and Mission to serve the Carolina Catholic Community!. 

We are Evangelistic Partners with our Clergy, Active Parishioners, the Fallen Away and the Homebound.  We are assessable to all Christians, Agnostics and Atheists.  With distribution of a wide array of content across 7 Media Platforms there's truly something for everyone.  

During these past 4 years Carolina Catholic has expanded to 7 media platforms including Radio, Internet Stream, Mobile App, Website, YouTube, social media and eNewsletter.  Nearly all local programs are available by Podcast and Video On-Demand.  

In the year ahead we are committed to promote more local parish, school and ministry events… more live broadcasts and more valuable content that showcases our dynamic local Carolina Catholic Community.  Of all the Catholic Radio stations in the US… Carolina Catholic is arguably a leader in locally produced Programs.  

To continue our work, Carolina Catholic Media needs $15,000 in monthly funding to maintain operations across our 7 media platforms. We are 100% dependent on your generosity.  If you love what we’re doing please join us with a monthly tithe or annual gift.  We have partnership plans available for parishes, schools, ministries.  If you own a business you can be a program sponsor on one or all of our platforms.  You can do a live broadcast of a special event with promotion before and rebroadcast after.

On behalf of everyone at Carolina Catholic Media, we thank you for your past support and look forward to you joining us with the resources the apostolate needs to continue to evangelize the Truth of Jesus Christ and our Catholic Faith across the Carolinas.  May God Bless you and your family abundantly!

Now more than ever we MUST fight for Life and we MUST do it together. You can help us in this fight by supporting a film project entitled Life Is My Choice. This full length film is based on an award winning short film by the same name; based on a true story which chronicles the life of a young woman who changes her mind after accidentally hearing the heartbeat of her unborn child. This project also includes stories of others contemplating abortion and tackles the issues of Planned Parenthood's practices, fathers' rights, and many others. Life Is My Choice is a powerful project that will influence a generation through the power of film.

We are exploring the formation of a new ministry across the Carolinas where active seniors can come together to provide mentorship, support and encouragement to individuals and families in need.  For more information reply here.

The Obligation

Join Jason as he sits down with John Sequeira who is the Lay Coordinator for the English Speaking Cursillo Movement in the Diocese of Charlotte.  John and Jason discuss the origins, meanings, and objectives of the Cursillo Movement and the importance of men's lay fellowship to strengthen each other, their communities, and the Church as a whole.  Topics include the three principals of Cursillo (Piety, Study, and Action) which assist men in growing in their Faith and putting that Faith into action, the "Fourth Day" objective of bringing these principals to life in our daily experiences, and ultimately growing in the knowledge of Our Lord and what He wills for each of us.  Listen as John and Jason tackle the difficult balance of Faith and Works where prayer and action come together in life's difficult moments.  Don't miss this one!   Cursillo

Sr. Anne Victory has led efforts against human trafficking for over a decade. She helped to establish the Collaborative to End Human Trafficking in 2007. One result of the Collaborative’s work is that over 60 agencies in NE Ohio–law enforcement, health care, social services, and others—are now connected to weave a safety net for the men, women, and children who are victims of human trafficking. Sister Anne is Director of Education at the Collaborative, and her background includes extensive experience as a nurse clinician, educator, and administrator.
