Ministries of Healing

“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has the eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” – St. Augustine

When Christ died, the apostles felt exactly as we feel. But the risen Christ joined them, opened their eyes and turned their sorrow into joy.  Volunteers of the ministries of healing become signs of the love God has for His people and a sign of His presence with them.  Please contact us if you feel called to participate in one of these special ministries.
