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.

Help Wanted - Videographer

posted Mar 9, 2016, 6:53 AM by St. Mary Catholic Church

We are in need of help shooting video of the 10 am Mass Homilies. We will be shooting the video of the homily each week, and we need another person to help with this. I, David Anderson, will occasionally be out of town, and will need for someone else to cover the shoot. I will normally be able to do the video editing even when out of town, but need someone to shoot it. Also, even when I am shooting, I prefer having a second camera shooting also. If you have an HD video camera, that would be great, but if not, but you do have experience with cameras, I can provide something for you.
NOTE: This is a volunteer position.
If interested, please email
