Nigel has been involved in the Healing Ministry for over 25 years. His conviction to pray for healing came in 1989 when his sister, Julie Sheldon, a ballet dancer with the Royal Ballet in London, was healed by God through the late Canon Jim Glennon. This was a very dramatic healing from a disease called Dystonia. Being a witness to her healing has had a profound effect on his life.
In 2007, Nigel, and two other retired military men, created "The Welcome Home Initiative” (WHI) a program of healing for veterans. This program invites men, & women of our Armed Forces ( from all wars ), who have served in combat, to come “free of charge” and be “welcomed home.” Our focus is on healing for post- traumatic stress and moral injury. More information on this program is found at our website By His Wounds.

Rev. Timothy M. Lijewski
Fr Tim was brought up in the Charleston area, in a devout Catholic family, and graduated from Wofford College. At Wofford, he worked in the Admissions Office for three years. He entered seminary in 1988 at the Catholic University of America and graduated with a Masters in Divinity in 1993, and ordained a priest on July 10, 1993 for the Diocese of Charleston.
Fr Tim’s assignments include: The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Charleston; St. Augustine Catholic Church in Union; Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Laurens; Catholic Chaplain and Campus Minister at St. Thomas Moore Catholic Student Center and Chapel at the University of South Caroline in Columbia; Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in North Augusta; St. James Catholic Church and Catholic Chaplain and Campus Minister at Coastal Carolina University in Conway.
In the summer of 1984, he attended the National Charismatic Conference at Notre Dame before his Senior year at Wofford. A woman said she had a prophecy that he would be a priest. God had already planted that seed, but that facilitated more serious discernment influencing his decision to enter the seminary in 1988. It was Bishop Unterkoefler of the Diocese of Charleston who sent Fr Tim to the Catholic University of America for seminary.
