Jesus healed people because it was a sure sign of God's love at work. We all need the wholeness only God can give. Some people need healing for an illness, some because of worry, fear or anxiety. In healing God gives us strength to carry on. Sometimes he takes away our pain or suffering all together. Of course if we are very ill healing may be to bring us through death into God's presence.
The Holy Oil of Healing (which is olive oil) is blessed by the bishop and then used throughout the year. The priest will use the oil to make the sign of the cross on your forehead and both hands. Healing ministry can be offered privately but is also offered at public worship. Please contact us if you wish to receive this ministry.
