Our Ministry's task is to
help you to be healed, reconciled, and nourished spiritually. In union
with Christ, you may be strengthened to share His work in your parish
communities. In turn, you help build up the Mystical Body of Christ in
the Diocese of Arlington. Clergy and laity alike unite to take
seriously the call of Jesus to heal the whole person spiritually,
emotionally, and physically. We are not the healers, but just the
instruments of the healing power of Jesus Christ.
Our service begins with the
celebration of the Eucharist. In faith we receive the Greatest Healer
into our bodies and souls, trusting that we will be nourished and healed in
all areas of our lives. Then each person is invited to be prayed with
individually, by the laying on of hands. This is not the anointing of the
sick. Priest confessors are
available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
