Healing and Deliverance Ministry

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."

What is Healing and Deliverance?

The purpose of this ministry is to help persons into freedom through healing and/or 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. 

Deliverance is freedom in Christ to be the person the Lord created you to be.

"It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery." Gal 5:1

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.

We will pray over the phone with you and take your prayer requests.

Call the Renewal Center to request Healing and Deliverance Prayer.

What ministry may include -

Soaking Prayer –

The soaking prayer entails laying on of hands and prayer over a person to immerse them in the healing love and power of God. Prayer is often directed toward the particular physical ailment, injury, or spiritual affliction.

Inner Healing -

The Inner Healing Ministry helps individuals who are seeking healing from past hurts and emotional wounds. As in the past, God still heals his children today. When seeking inner healing, Jesus is invited into the areas of our lives where needed. God‘s peace, blessings, and healing may be blocked by our own way of life. Trained prayer ministers are available to help.  Contact Anne Hruz to schedule a healing session.

Scheduled H/D Ministry

You may request a scheduled appointment for ministry: daytime and some evening appointments are available. Call Anne at (314) 731-6100 or email [email protected]

After the Christ Alive Through Mary Women's breakfasts

Healing Masses - Jesus continues to heal today as he did over 2000 years ago.  At a healing mass, we bring our needs and infirmities to the Lord through the Eucharist.  We believe Jesus is present in the Eucharist.
