Jesus healed many people of their sins, sicknesses and brokenness. He gave his disciples, including us today, the gift of healing. Healing as a spiritual gift can take many forms. There can be spiritual, psychological, financial and relational healing. A personal relationship with Jesus and a strong sacramental life are essential for any type of healing as is a vibrant prayer life. Some people have a gift of one type of healing or another.

Mission Of Healing 

 "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."


What Is Healing ?

The purpose of this ministry is to help persons into freedom through healing prayer. The Healing Ministry functions in union with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Louis, MO in cooperation with the Catholic Renewal Center. 


Healing Training

If you are interested in training to be a healing minister call Anne Hruz (314) 731-6100. Most often it is required to have done Jonah prayer team training and a Life in the Spirit Seminar. Training can be in a class or on your own.

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. 

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.
