Welcome to the website for the voice of Catholicism on the airwaves in southeastern North Carolina. You're at the right place if you want to learn about or listen to truly Catholic shows like Catholic Answers Live, the Drew Mariani Show, and many, many more including our own Carolina Catholic show.
Carolina Catholic and Gender Identity
For our first August show, Carolina Catholic addresses the issue of gender identity with Deacon Patrick Lappert, M.D., a plastic surgeon, a retired Naval captain, a USMC fighter pilot, and Chaplain for Courage for the Diocese of Birmingham. As a plastic surgeon and as a Catholic deacon, Dr. Lappert will share how his work as a plastic surgeon and a Catholic deacon is at the nexus of this issue where many seek medical and surgical options. In addition, Dr. Lappert will share his own conversion story from atheism to the Catholic faith and his ordination as a permanent deacon.
This show will air Saturdays at 11 am and Sundays at 6 pm. The dates are Saturdays, August 1 and 8, and Sundays, August 2 and 9.
Carolina Catholic Welcomes Mother Delores Hart
For our first July show, Carolina Catholic chats with Mother Dolores Hart, O.S.B., a religious sister who first came to fame co-starring in the movie, "Loving You," with Elvis Presley. As Dolores Hart, she went on to star in another Elvis movie, "King Creole" and other films including "Where the Boys Are," and she co-starred with actors like Anthony Quinn, George Hamilton, Robert Wagner, and Montgomery Clift until she felt a call to monastic life and left Hollywood at the pinnacle of her career. In celebrating 50+ years at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Connecticut, Mother wrote her best selling autobiography, The Ear of the Heart, An Actress' Journey from Hollywood to Holy Vows, reflecting on her life, her career, her calling, and her illness. In addition to Mother, we will chat with her assistant, Judith Pinco, former manager for Donna Summer. Judith's conversion to the Catholic faith is a remarkable witness to listening to the same call that Mother heard and couldn't ignore.
This show will air Saturdays at 11 am and Sundays at 6 pm. The dates are Saturdays, July 4 and 11, and Sundays, July 5 and 12.
