Scam Warning!!

posted Aug 29, 2018, 7:14 AM by St. Mary Catholic Church

There have been a few parishioners receiving a scam message, supposedly from Fr. Joe Pearce, asking for help. Father has NOT sent any requests for help. The number they are requesting you to call is 803-265-7513. This number is from Beech, SC, just east of Augusta, GA. I tried calling the number, and got no answer. The email received is from frjoepearce@gmail.com, which is NOT Father Joe's email. His is frjoepearce@hotmail.com.

A Celebration of the Life of Brother David Boone

posted Nov 5, 2017, 3:57 PM by St. Mary Catholic Church   [ updated Nov 22, 2017, 2:42 PM ]

Father Guiliani told us what a glorious day at this Thanksgiving season to say thank you to God for Brother David and his life. All of us have been impacted by his life and his witness and by his love. He told us how Brother David loved to go home to Kentucky in August to work in the harvest. He said he had left a rich garden, in many ways. He told us how Brother David validated people and he believed in people and he called forth the best in people. David's message was that every person is of great value in the eyes of God.

Religion in Rock Hill: Interfaith Dialogue

posted Mar 14, 2017, 6:31 AM by St. Mary Catholic Church   [ updated Apr 14, 2017, 5:39 PM ]

Imagine an atmosphere filled with the peace and love of God. Within this atmosphere you have two different religions that are very strong in their convictions. However, they are joined under one roof to unite in similarities, instead of differences. If you thought that this could not take place in today’s political and social climate, well, I would dare to say that you do not understand the rich history of St. Mary Catholic Church. St. Mary Catholic Church, has always been a faith filled community that accepts anyone and every one, instead of excluding based upon the standards of society. On March 11, 2017, in the St. Martin de Porres Fellowship Hall, the communities of St. Mary Catholic Church, led by Father Pearce and Deacon Chisolm, and the Rock Hill Muslim Community led by their Imam (prayer leader) Essam Musa, led an atmosphere that was truly full of God’s peace and love.


The program included presentations that explained t
he importance of the Catholic Mass and Islamic beliefs. Time was also set aside to accommodate for the Muslim prayer at sun down. This experience allowed for non-Muslims to witness their Muslim brothers and sisters perform one of their 5 obligated times of prayer, facing northeast towards the holiest site in Islam. A Q&A session followed and during this time
unifying pointers that both sides agreed upon was that first and foremost we both serve the same God, and that prayer establishes a connection with God. Both sides also agreed that an important part of any religion is how you behave and treat others. This wonderful experience was finally concluded with fellowship and refreshments provided by both the Muslim and Catholic communities.
