Construction Timeline

Renovation has begun at our storefront! The demolition process started earlier this week, and we
are scheduled for an initial opening of Christ On Main in late March. We can still provide site
tours during the constructing process, so please contact us today if you would like to see Christ
On Main as it undergoes a beautiful transformation. Our executive director Brendan Dudley can
be reached at brendan@christonmain.org or 864-640-8734.

Ideas & Volunteers

We are organizing a variety of storefront activities and local events. Please share with us the
topics and ideas that you would like provided by Christ On Main. We want your involvement to
help share the love of Jesus throughout the Upstate and bring people into a deeper connection
with our Catholic faith. Your participation also includes volunteer opportunities! We need
assistance with graphic design, marketing, retail, etc. We especially need your help as a
storefront volunteer to welcome guests, organize activities, and more! Stay tuned for e-mails
about volunteering, and please continue your prayerful support as we move closer to opening
Christ On Main.

Faith Formation Series

As a resource center, Christ On Main will be offering and promoting faith formation
opportunities for anyone wanting to explore the love of Jesus through dynamic educational and
spiritual events. An upcoming opportunity is a series at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church
from February 19th to May 6th.

The series is titled “Four Great Christian Writers of the 20th Century: Eliot, Waugh, Lewis, &
Tolkien,” led by the esteemed Professor Joseph Pearce and Father Dwight Longenecker.
This 12-week course, starting February 19, 2024, offers a deep dive into the works and worlds of
T.S. Eliot, Evelyn Waugh, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien. Each Monday, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm,
gather in Guadalupe Hall at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church (3710 Augusta Rd.,
Greenville, SC 29605) to explore these literary giants’ contributions to Christian thought and
culture.
Each session brings new insights into these writers’ masterpieces, from Eliot’s “The Waste Land”
to Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings.” Learn from Fr. Longenecker and Prof. Pearce, who bring
years of scholarship and passion to their teaching.
