Journey of faith and discovery

When David Sanborn was a Protestant pastor, he often studied the writings of the Church Fathers while preparing Sunday sermons. As he did, he became more convinced that the Catholic Church was the one founded by Jesus Christ. He left his position of leadership to become a Catholic and now serves as a youth and young adult minister at St. Ignatius in Hickory, where he inspires a new generation in the faith. #IamCatholic

Reaching out

Dr. J. William Cook

When Dr. J. William “Bill” Cook recently became the president of the St. Agnes Medical Group, he understood that he was tasked with leading a ministry that began more than 150 years ago. The medical group can trace its roots back to the work of the Daughters of Charity during the Civil War.

“You’re talking about women who gave up their whole life to take care of sick and poor people,” Cook said. “To take on that legacy is very humbling.”

A primary care physician with St. Agnes for 25 years, Cook said his faith is something he always falls back on. 

“I’ve spent more of my life being a Catholic than being a doctor,” he said.
