"PRAYING WITH OTHERS"
"Based upon "Christian Healing Ministries' School of
Healing Prayer". These teachings begin with the Scriptural
Foundations for Healing and the History of Healing in the Church, and
how the Gifts of the Holy Spirit are related to healing prayer. A
sample of other topics include: Healing Our Image of God, Praying for
Physical Healing, Introduction to Inner Healing and The Healing
Power of Forgiveness. Historically, it is simply not true that healing
ceased with the apostles. These teachings are remarkable. You do not
need to feel called to a healing ministry to attend. Some people may
feel led in that way, but it is not necessary. Whether you are just
interested in information, or you are looking for an experience that can
change your life as well as others, the Lord provides generously.

CAMP AWESOME
It's going to be a busy week in youth
ministry this week! School is quickly approaching
but instead of spending the last few precious days
of vacation sleeping in, our youth will be waking
up early and working with children who are
underprivileged. 3 years ago our teens were asked
by the "Show Them We Care Foundation" to run a camp for other
kids that don't get the same opportunities they do. Our youth
stepped right up to the challenge and started a camp with the mantra
of St. Francis of Assisi. "Preach the gospel always when absolutely
necessary use words" We get together each morning at 9:00 to
begin our day with prayer. We then head to camp which is just a
short distance from the church. Once we are in the neighborhood
we spend 3 hours singing songs, playing games, making crafts, and
just enjoying the blessings of love and friendship. The foundation
has told us numerous times that they have never had a group that
the children have responded so well to. The children loved the
camp so much that the first year we were there they named the
camp "Camp Awesome!!!" This camp has become a youth favorite.
At the end of each year when we review our youth group year
Camp Awesome is always at the top of the list of favorite
activities!!! Aside from our summer camp our teens also spend one
day during Christmas break and every Good Friday doing a camp
for the kids. Camp Awesome has taken on a life of it's own and
become a wonderful tradition of service for our teens. I may be a
little biased but I thought you all should know how great OLH
teens are!! We have so much to be proud of!! OLH YOUTH
ROCK!!! Please keep us in your prayers this coming week.

Saints Class
Where: Family Life Center Library
When: starts in September, after Labor Day, Thursdays, 2:00PM 3:30PM Instructor/coordinator: Rachel Godwin
We are pleased to announce that we will be having a weekly class
devoted to the in-depth study of Catholic saints. This class is solely
for mature Catholic adults. No book is required for this class.
The issues which the saints had to address were often very similar to
those of modern-day Catholics. We will discuss the lives of the saints;
how to apply lessons from their lives to our own; and the resources
which the Church makes available to Catholics in addressing modernday issues. We will also cover the historical context - where applicable.
Objectives:
1 - to give parishioners an in-depth look at the saints - their lives and
struggles; 2 - to give class members options in prayer life; 3 - to learn
to discern between good Catholic practices and superstition; 4 - to
learn more about the resources which the Catholic Church offers to
people who need comfort and guidance in times of stress or when
tragedy strikes.
We will be studying archangels Saints Michael, Gabriel, Uriel and
Raphael; Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Thomas More, Saint Monica,
Saint Augustine, Saint Francis de Sales and Saint Pope John Paul II.
For information, contact Rachel Godwin, email:
[email protected], telephone: 803 750-9777 (leave a message

WELCOME – OUR NEW PAROCHIAL VICAR
Father John Francis Murray, C.Ss.R.
I was born in Flushing, Queens,
N.Y.C. I attended St. Andrew
Catholic Grade School and
Flushing High School. When I
was 21 years old I moved to
Connecticut and joined the
business world. I soon became a
sales manager for a growing
company. Although things were
going well financially, I realized
something was missing.
Then, one day out of the blue,
my friend a priest asked me if I had ever thought of
being a priest. From that point on, everything else is
history, I entered the Redemptorist Seminary in Suffield
Connecticut in 1985 and eventually sold my house and
gave away all my belongings. God continues to bless me
in so many ways, I am truly grateful!
I professed first my First Vows (poverty, chastity,
obedience) in 1988 and my Final Vows in 1991.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Philosophy from St.
Alphonsus College, Suffield Connecticut in 1989
1. I received my Masters of Divinity from Washington
Theological Union, Washington D.C. in 1994
Ordained a priest at Basilica of the National Shrine of

ser sacerdote. A partir de ese momento, todo lo
demás es historia, me incorpore en el seminario

Dear Parishioners of Our Lady of the
Hills,
This weekend the Redemptorists
begin their ministry with you as they assume
pastoral care for your parish. We are
happy to be with you. You may have noticed
that all Redemptorists have four letters
after their names – C.Ss.R. This stands for
Congregatio Sanctissimi Redemptoris.
This is the official Latin title given to our
Religious Community. It can be
translated into English as “Congregation of the
Most Holy Redeemer,” more commonly
called “Redemptorists.” On our coat of arms
seen in the picture above, is a quote from Psalm 130, verse 7: Copiosa Apud Eum Redemptio – With Him There Is
Plentiful Redemption. According to our rule, Redemptorists are “to strive to imitate the virtues and examples of Jesus
Christ, Our Redeemer, consecrating themselves especially to the preaching of the word of God to the poor.”
In 1732, St. Alphonsus founded the Redemptorists in the hills of Naples, Italy in a small village called Scala. It
was to the poor shepherds and goat herders that St. Alphonsus preached. They didn’t want to know how to tend their
flocks or fields; they wanted to know that God loved them! With that, the mission and purpose of the Congregation of
the Most Holy Redeemer took root.
For 283 years Redemptorist missionaries have witnessed the love of Jesus the Redeemer throughout the world.
The 5,300 Redemptorists today serve in 78 different countries. As missionaries, we first came to South Carolina in
1930 to the Parish of Holy Trinity and to Christ the King Chapel for the African American Catholics in Orangeburg
County. We established mission churches in Holly Hill and Santee as well as in Barnwell, Bamberg, and Allendale
Counties. We remained in Orangeburg until 1996 when Bishop Thompson asked us to provide pastoral care in Sumter.
In 1940 Redemptorists served African American Catholics at St. Joseph's in Spartanburg until it closed in 1962
as the churches in Spartanburg were integrated. We established St. Gerard's in Aiken in 1946 and remained until 1967.
The parish continues to this day. Bishop Thompson also asked the Redemptorists to establish St. Francis by the Sea
Church in Hilton Head Island in 1984. We remained until 1997.
As our commitment to serve in Sumter expired, Bishop Guglielmone, in dialogue with our Vice Provincial
Superior, Fr. Glenn Parker, C.Ss.R, came to the decision that the Redemptorists would provide pastoral care for the
parish of Our Lady of the Hills. We recognize that the Diocese of Charleston is still a mission diocese and our service
at your parish is helping the Bishop fulfill his responsibility to provide pastoral care for all in the diocese. Our
ministry among you is also an opportunity to invite you to enter more deeply into the ministry and mystery of
redemption in the spirit of St. Alphonsus Liguori.
We Redemptorists strive to live and proclaim the story of the cross and of Jesus Christ who loves us and has
saved us as our Redeemer. “From his fullness we have all received, grace in place of grace.” (John 1:16) And in the
beautiful words of the Easter Exultet proclamation, “What good would life have been to us, had Christ not come as our
Redeemer?”
May Mary our Mother of Perpetual Help watch over all of us and protect us always!
Your brothers in Christ,
Father John Francis Murray, C.Ss.R.
Father Peter Sousa, C.Ss.R.
"ORDER OF CARMELITES DISCALCED SECULAR”
2016 Formation Classes will begin in January. If you are
interested in inquiring about the Order of Carmelites Discalced
Secular you are invited to visit the community from June to
December of this year. This allows an acquaintance to be made
before formation begins.
The secular ("third" order is a community of lay persons who live
according to the spirit of the Order of Discalced Carmelites, but
who do not leave their secular state of life [that is, they continue to
live fully their family life, and work in the world.] It is a
requirement of the Order to visit the community for six months
prior to beginning formation. Visitors are always welcome and
visiting the community does not obligate you in anyway.
We meet at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 809 Calhoun St.,
Columbia, SC, the 4th Sunday of every month from 1:30 pm to
5:00 pm, January through November. In December an Advent Day
of Recollection is held on the 1st or 2nd Saturday in December,
rather than the 4th Sunday. That date TBA.
If you are Roman Catholic, over 18, participating fully in the
sacramental life of the church, and think you may have a vocation
with the Secular Discalced Carmelites, please contact us. If you
have any questions or would like to request a brochure to be
mailed or emailed to you with more information, please call
Sharon Crocker at (803) 309-2480 or email
