Conway Grand Opening

Catholic Charities is proud to announce the official grand opening and blessing of our new office in Conway! This office will serve the entire Pee Dee area and can be found at 2294 Technology Blvd. Conway, SC 29526.

Charitable outreach is one of the main missions of the Catholic Church. The Diocese of Charleston has moved its Catholic Charities office in the Pee Dee so that it is more centrally located to those in need of assistance. On Monday, May 13, at 4:30, Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone will bless the new building. Catholic Charities staff will host a grand opening that all are invited to attend. At first, the new facility will offer food assistance and prescription aid. In the upcoming months, it will offer dental and vision assistance, senior care and laundry facility for the homeless.

We are thrilled to be opening this new office and are excited for the many great services and life changing opportunities that will be offered in this new office. If you are interested in donating to Catholic Charities to assist with these programs or volunteering in this office, please visit our website
