Mission of Healing and Deliverance
"To more fully awaken everyone to the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit and their importance in empowering the ministry of bringing Christ to others through team prayer for healing and deliverance."
Our Prayer ministers are here for you!
During this time of pandemic many can be experiencing stress and filled with worry. We turn to our faith in God in these moments and sometimes talking and praying with a brother or sister in faith is just what we need to ease our mind when we are struggling. The sharing of our faith and the accompaniment of one another on the journey is a core value of the Archdiocese. If you would like to talk, pray or otherwise faith share with a representative of our Local Church, please respond to the email address below and leave your contact information with a preference of time to be called. One of our prayer team members will reach out to you. May God bless you and ease your suffering. We are here for you and look forward to connecting.

What is Healing and Deliverance?
"He summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick." (Lk. 9:1-2)
The purpose of this ministry is to help persons into freedom through healing/deliverance prayer. The Healing/Deliverance Ministry functions in union with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Louis, MO in cooperation with the Catholic Renewal Center.
Our Father...Deliver us from evil. Amen.
Those who seek the help of this ministry desire to live Jesus' promise of abundant life and have decided to act righteously, but are experiencing blockages or bondages. They may feel unable to overcome negativity, fear, sorrow, anxiety, grief, resentment, habitual sin and compulsions, even though their minds understand that their behavior is not right or healthy. In these persistent trials, evil spirits may be at work.
