"Alongside the commission to exorcise, Matthew adds the mission to heal. The Twelve are sent “to heal every disease and every infirmity” (Mt 10: 1). Healing is an essential dimension of the apostolic mission and of Christian faith in general. . . When understood at a sufficiently deep level, this expresses the entire content of redemption.”
(Pope Benedict XVI, Jesus of Nazareth: From the Baptism in the Jordan to the Transfiguration, pp. 175-176).
Are you in need of prayer for healing? We are happy to pray with you to receive physical or inner healing.
Please note: individual prayer ministry sessions take place Thursdays through Saturdays in the parish offices at 1514 Michigan Avenue (across the road from the church).
What happens at a prayer ministry session? A team of two people will pray with you to receive whatever healing God chooses to give you. You will be given the opportunity to use prayers which will help you to open up more deeply to God.
Prayer ministers in this ministry are not therapists or counselors, simply people who have received healing graces themselves and have been trained in how to pray over others for healing.
Many people come once for an appointment, but others schedule follow-ups. It is completely up to you.
Shorter prayer sessions (10-15 minutes) are available by drop-in on Sundays from after 9am Mass onward in the Conference Room in Mercy Hall. Simply add your name to the list and we will call or text you when your turn comes up.
All appointments are treated with confidentiality.
If you feel the Lord has blessed you with a healing and you would like to tell us about it, in order to build up the faith of others, please give a brief account of your experience by clicking the link below. From time to time we will post encouraging testimonies on the website. If you wish to remain anonymous, just let us know.
