The ministry of Jesus included the healing of the sick and the casting out of demons, and he gives us his Spirit today so that this ministry of compassion for the sick can continue.
A Healing Service is held monthly after the 9.30 Sunday Mass at the Abbey. It is a simple liturgy of prayers for healing and takes place in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. People gather for 10.45 and it finishes by 11.15; the Blessed Sacrament is exposed and hands are laid on those asking for healing and prayers of intercession are offered for those not present. The service is usually held on the first Sunday of the month. The next healing services will be held on the following Sundays – 7th January and 4th February 2018.
A Mass with Prayers for Healing for our families, for those who we know are in need and for ourselves is held on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.15 pm in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Contact Fr Rod on 01342 710303 for further details. The next Mass will be on Wednesday, 6th December 2017.
