Site Selection Update
The VCIC Board of Directors and the Site Selection Committee have been actively searching for appropriate downtown Greenville locations for the center. Our initial offer was rejected in favor of another entity. We are currently working with an experienced commercial realtor to explore other suitable locations. Stay tuned for updates.
On June 6, the VCIC co-sponsored a major address by Dr. Scott Hahn, delivered at Saint Joseph’s High School. Dr. Hahn spoke eloquently and passionately about the Old Testament roots of the Holy Eucharist. Dr. Hahn also offered his prayers and encouragement for the success of the VCIC. Photographs from the event are available in the Events section of the website.
The “storefront” name of the VCIC is currently being selected, based on input from committee members, donors and other supporters. This will be the “brand name” that will identify our physical location and accompany all public correspondence. The foremost name under consideration is “Christ on Main.”
