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 ontinue.
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 7th April and 5th May 2019.
