Our Healing Ministry
At St. Simon's, we offer Healing Ministry every Sunday at the principal Holy Eucharist. Everyone is invited to come forward and to pray with clergy and lay members of our healing ministry for any kind of healing—physical, emotional, spiritual—including such needs as healing of relationships, memories, and freedom from addictions.
A large part of Jesus’ ministry and the ministry he passed on to his disciples involved healing of all kinds. The Rite of Healing consists of prayers for healing of body, mind, and spirit, and is accompanied by the laying-on of hands and anointing with holy oil, as the Scripture suggests in James 5:14-16. At St. Simon's, we offer healing prayer and anointing with holy oil every Sunday for any kind of healing-physical, emotional, spiritual-and including such needs as freedom from addictions and healing of broken relationships.
The Rite of Healing is also available whenever one is ill, anticipating surgery, or feels the need to receive this sacrament. Please ask the clergy about this.
