On January 27, a large and enthusiastic group of supporters gathered at the Poinsett Club in Greenville to celebrate Candlemas, enjoy dinner, and receive an update on the progress of the Christ On Main of Greenville. Father Jay Scott Newman of St. Mary’s offered the invocation and Father Christopher Smith of Prince of Peace gave an eloquent address on the importance of Catholic evangelization in the upstate. Board of Directors Chairman Jordan Roberts provided an overview of the VCIC’s mission by comparing our work to that of St. Francis of Assisi’s mission to rebuild the San Damiano Chapel. Vice Chairman Robert Poppleton briefed the gathering on the ongoing search for a downtown location. In the last 18 months, the VCIC’s Board has visited over 20 potential locations and submitted 4 offers, none of which were accepted. However, we are currently in negotiations with a landlord for a Main Street location and hope to have good news soon.
]As the VCIC moves closer to securing a physical location and hiring a Director of Operations, the need for spiritual and financial support becomes even more important. Please continue to support the VCIC with your prayers, presence, and finances.
