MARIAN SERVANTS® of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic School of Healing Prayer
School Overview and Schedule
The School of Healing Prayer 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.
At this time the class of 2023 is full.
We will open registration for 2024 soon.
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.
