Healing Litany

On the first Sunday of the month, we stand after the sermon to pray the Healig Litany for people who are on our hearts and minds, others who are in need of healing and those who work in the medical field. People may come forward for anointing with holy oil, laying on of hands and prayer for themselves or others. We follow the ancient practice of the earliest Christians as seen in James 5:14-16.

Episcopalians believe God’s healing power works through our bodies which God created with an incredible ability to heal, through modern medical treatments and medicine, through the anointing of oil and prayer, and through ways we cannot imagine. While people come forward for prayer, the congregation is invited to sit for a time of prayer or contemplation while our music minister plays the piano.
