Healing Service at English Martyrs

Healing Service at English Martyrs

English Martyrs and St Robert’s came together on 25 February 2017 to organise a Healing service led by our very own Fr Shaun.  It was a very spiritual day.  The event was especially for those who were housebound, sick or who found it difficult to get to church.  We arranged to pick up the parishioners from their homes so that they didn’t miss out.

The service was lovely and it involved music, prayers and Fr Shaun made sure that everyone was anointed with oil, prayed over and given a prayer card. 

Afterwards everyone stayed to enjoy a buffet, tea, coffee and time talking to each other.  Many have asked for the event to be run again.

Fr Shaun said,
‘It was lovely to see people come be blessed and be involved in a very spiritual and prayerful event.  I wanted to make sure that people came stayed afterwards to enjoy some time together too and from all accounts everyone had a good time’.

Watch this space for another event soon…..
