The bishop of Charleston on Wednesday blessed a new home for women experiencing a crisis pregnancy in South Carolina.
St. Clare’s Home, located in Greenville County, South Carolina, opened on Aug. 11, the feast of St. Clare, with a blessing from Bishop Robert Guglielmone and remarks from pro-life leaders.
The home will have the capacity to house up to eight women and their young children under the age of five. The house is run by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charleston, and women will be permitted to stay for up to two years after they give birth to their child.
“This has been a work in progress for many, many years, and I just thank God that we’re able to see this day,” said Bishop Guglielmone on Wednesday. “So, it is indeed a pleasure for me to be here.”
