Healing Ministry
(St. Luke’s Guild)

Church of the Ascension has a long history of healing ministry to its members and the community. The Healing Ministry is done in a variety of ways; primarily through intercessory prayer and anointing with the laying on of hands. Our healing ministry is open to everyone.

Intercessory Prayers: Once a prayer request is made known, it is sent to the members St. Luke’s intercessors and healing team for intentional and continuous prayers. Prayer requests can be sent to Father Samuel Nsengiyumva.

Anointing with Laying on of Hands: Opportunities for anointing (unction) with laying on of hands is offered at every worship service on Sunday and Wednesday. During the Holy Cross Hall service, members of the Healing Team are available to anoint and pray with anyone during communion. During Stone Church services, the priest or deacon anoints and prays with people at the altar immediately following communion. If you wish to join the healing team, you may contact Father Samuel Nsengiyumva. Occasionally, we also hold Healing Services on Sunday.

Home Visits: Our Clergy and members of the Healing Team are always available to visit people in their homes to anoint and pray with them. If you need someone to visit you, please contact Deacon Barbara or the Church Office.

Healing Seminars: Our Healing Ministry team sometimes invites someone with expertise in the area of Healing Ministry to come and teach and conduct healing services. The next Healing Seminar is scheduled for April 2018 with the Rev. Sharon Lewis of the Florida based Amazing Love Healing Ministry.
