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 5th August and 8th September 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 710308 for further details.
Please note there will not be a Mass with Prayers for Healing on Wednesday, 6th June. There will be a Healing Service in the Abbey Church on Sunday, 17th June at 2.00pm followed by prayers for healing.
