Carolina Catholic Program Highlights

PRESCRIPTION: LIFE with Dr. Matthew Harrison

Dr. Harrison talks with Dr. Stephen Sammut professor of psychology at Franciscan University of Steubenville.  @DifferentHeart   @FranciscanU  #catholic #prolife #prolifemedia #psychology #catholicradio


THE OBLIGATION with Jason Murphy

The 13th Annual Catholic Men's Conference of the Carolinas was held on March 18, 2023 at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Charlotte, NC.  In this episode, Jason replays the talk given by Deacon John Clarke of the Diocese of Charlotte who is currently assigned to Immaculate Heart of Mary in High Point, NC.  Deacon Clarke’s competitive spirit began with wrestling in high school and led to a professional fighting career on the Strike Force (later bought by the UFC), fighting on the same card as UFC notables Ricky Diaz and Robbie Lawler.  After finishing his first semester in the deaconate program, he left a 10-year career as a police officer, where he spent the last four as a SWAT team member and canine officer with the City of Hollywood, FL.

JOYFUL ECHO with Jean and Kathleen

Jean shares some insights from the weekend’s Mary’s Women of Joy retreat with Liz Kelly. She and Kathleen talk about praying with Scripture, using Psalm 23 as an example of resting in God’s Providence.

The Charlotte Latin Mass Community

This week's CLMC newsletter 
St. Mark Latin Mass Ends This Friday March 31: Sadly, as noted from the pulpit and bulletin over the past few weeks, due to the new restrictions from Rome, the St. Mark parish Latin Mass will end this Friday March 31 on the commemoration of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is indeed sorrowful news, but let us offer prayers of thanksgiving for seven years this weekly Latin Mass has been offered by St. Mark priests and the countless souls it has supported and nourished.

Fr. Chad Ripperger "Our Lady of Sorrows and Healing"

For the second week in a row, the CLMC is grateful to St. Thomas Aquinas parish for inviting a traditional priest to give a talk to the faithful. Fr. Chad Ripperger’s talks and Q&A this past weekend was a wonderful spiritual gift to all.  On a separate but related note about Latin Mass priests, between Fr. Portzer’s Lenten mission and Fr. Ripperger’s visit this past weekend, these two back-to-back events were a source of great consolation for the Latin Mass faithful when the Latin Mass faces an uncertain future. If you haven’t already done so, please pray a decade of one’s Rosary for Fr. Codd (for hosting them),and consider thanking him when you have a chance.

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.

Please watch this important 2 minute video message on the future of Carolina Catholic Media and how you can get involved in the apostolate!

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. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit without diocesan funding, 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 and 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.  These are all great ways to support your local independent Catholic media voice. 

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!

We are preparing to consecrate the Carolina Catholic Media apostolate to
Our Lady of Grace. Details to come in the weeks ahead.

Our Lady of Grace 
This painting of Our Lady of Grace was realized by speaking with David Papandrea, Founder/Chairman at Carolina Catholic Media Network. We have become good friends in sharing life and faith, and just getting older! Carolina Catholic Media is in the process of fundraising for the upcoming year, and David had the idea of a painting of Mary with stars. So, the birth of Our Lady of Grace with the moon as her hallow, surrounded by the stars and future devotees and donors to the Carolina Catholic Media apostolate.
