MARIAN SERVANTS® of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic School of Healing Prayer

This school began in 2011 at the House of Prayer in St. Augustine Florida. As Marian Servants of the Blessed Sacrament, we recognized a continued need for Christ’s healing for all who are following Him and serving others in ministry. As we are healed, we are able to grow in intimacy and holiness with Christ. We become more like Jesus and are better able to live out our identity, destiny, and purpose in Christ as we bring His love and Gospel to others.

PURPOSE:

To bring Christ’s healing love and refreshment to Catholics (laity, ordained, & religious) and other Christians serving in ministry, thus allowing them to more deeply serve as instruments of God’s healing, mercy, and love to all who are hurting.

This program is designed to enable Catholics, and other Christians to understand and receive Christ’s healing ministry and begin to integrate aspects of this ministry into their care and service to others.

OBJECTIVES INCLUDE:

Participants will be able to:

  1. Encourage others more deeply with the compassion and mercy received in Christ (1Cor. 1:3-4).
  2. Articulate their relationship with Christ and minister to others out of His love.
  3. Experience a deeper presence of the Lord’s healing for themselves.
  4. Integrate principles of healing prayer into their own lives, families, and ministries.
  5. Evangelize by seeking out and responding in Christ’s love to those who are hurting and brokenhearted.

SETTING & FORMAT:

All sessions will be held at the beautiful Marywood Retreat and Conference Center, St. Johns, FL. This is a tranquil setting that provides the atmosphere necessary to step away from the business of life and into a time of growth with the Lord. Excellent meals are provided and rooms private or semi-private are available.

Currently, we hold one school a year with the program beginning on a Sunday night with dinner at 6PM and continuing with 4 day/evening sessions and a half-day session on the 5th day.

The format includes formal teachings, testimonies, small groups, personal prayer ministry, Daily Mass, Reconciliation, Adoration, Liturgy of the Hours, and group prayer/worship sessions. All small groups are led by a Certified Spiritual Director. We are blessed to have a Catholic Priest available throughout the school to assist us in many ways, most especially in Celebrating Eucharist and Reconciliation.
