3Young adults are gathering at White Oak Conference Center (Winnsboro, SC – about 1.5 hours from Greenville) this weekend for a retreat about Intentional Evangelization led by Father Jeffrey Kirby and Rachel Neubauer. If you are unable to attend Friday-Sunday, options for a shorter stay are available! Intentional Evangelization is the conscious decision to not only follow Jesus Christ, but to follow His example in sharing of one’s life with another to show the loving example of the Father.

Join Fr. Jeffrey Kirby, STL Vicar of Vocations for the Diocese of Charleston and Author, of Lord, Teach us to Pray, and Rachel Neubauer, Associate Director of Young Adult Ministry as we learn about the joy and beauty in sharing of our lives with others through the example of Jesus Christ.

For more information or questions, please contact Rachel at rneubauer@catholic-doc.org. We hope to see you there! Scholarships are available, too!

The Retreat Brochure can be found: retreat brochure leadership training.

Hour of Grace was an evening filled with an inspirational reflection by Father Pat, voices uniting in praise and worship music led by Justin Dery of Anderson, silent prayer and reflection, receipt of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and much more. Afterward, LVGers gathered upstairs and downstairs in the beautiful St. Anthony of Padua School. Several more braved the rain for gelato at Luna Rosa! A special thank you to all, especially Father Pat for his generous gift of time and words.

Hour of Grace begins tonight at 7pm at St. Anthony of Padua in the brand new, and quite beautiful school Chapel of the Holy Spirit (across the parking lot from the Church). Several have asked about the format of the hour. Within your time before the Blessed Sacrament, you’ll hear praise & worship music played by one of our favorite Anderson-based contemporary musicians, Justin Dery, and a guided reflection on the intercession of the Holy Spirit by Father Patrick Tuttle. A mixture of silent time, singing, and prayer will fill the remainder of the hour. All will have the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. If you haven’t already read Father Chris’ (very complete!) Guide to Confession, find it here. Where LVG members gather in the evening, dinner is not far behind! Stick around and join those who may wish to get a snack or a meal following. Contact Victoria B @ 770-366-3246 with questions!


There is NO book study at Spill the Beans tonight.


Many thanks to all who attended the July Happy Hour held at High Cotton. It was an exciting event with the large group splitting up afterward into those who went to dinner at Liberty Tap Room and others who went to gelato at Luna Rosa. Contact Tyler at 803-422-6118 with your special requests for our August 8th Happy Hour location!


For those of you unfamiliar, XLT stands for eXaLT and is a night of praise and worship, witness, and Eucharistic Adoration. The term is coined by LifeTeen. If a rose by any other name smells as sweet (thanks Shakespeare!), then our very own Hour of Grace is the place to be!

On Tuesday July 15 from 7-8pm, Father Pat Tuttle will lead a guided reflection, Justin Dery will provide praise and worship style music, and there will be time for silent adoration/reflection/prayer along with the opportunity for receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Join us at St. Anthony of Padua!
