Cancelled due to illness 

Our Lady of Grace Welcomes Bishop Sam Jacobs for a weekend of Healing

 

Bishop Jacobs will be co-celebrating with Father Dan at all Masses the weekend of September 23 & 24.  After Mass, both Bishop Jacobs and Father Dan will be offering the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick.

 

On Sunday afternoon, there will be a special Service for the Healing of Memories led by Bishop Jacobs.  We have all been wounded and disappointed in life.  Most of us “carry on”, but the memory of these wounds, though buried deep, have a tendency to rob us of our joy, peace, and even our physical health.  Bishop Jacobs will assist us in pulling up these memories, allowing the healing light of the Holy Spirit to help us to let go and let God take away the pain and fill us with the love and grace of forgiveness.

 

The Healing Service will begin at 1:30 PM on Sunday, September 24, 2017.  We will begin with 30 minutes of music, followed by Bishop’s presentation on Healing of Memories.

 

Those attending the Healing Service will then have the opportunity for Eucharistic Adoration and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Prayer teams will be available for those who would like individual prayer for healing (physical and spiritual), prayer to guide one with job issues, friends/family matters, the grace to discern God's will and to follow His teachings, and /or thanksgiving…..Whatever you desire or need. 

 

Come join us and pray with us!  The Holy Spirit is willing….are you?
