Very near and dear to the heart of Fr. Kevin is the is the idea of a Healing Prayer Ministry vision for St. Augustine’s. He has persistently cast a vision for this ministry in clergy staff meeting over the past couple of years. Originally, Fr. Ron and Fr. Ric brainstormed the concept and were beginning to develop the outline for a prayer ministry. Then Fr. Ron was called to serve in another parish. Of course, Fr. Kevin continued to fuel the prayer ministry vision. The desire for this ministry has been discussed at length in leadership team meetings. For now Fr. Ric will assume the leadership role. Given that brief history, here is what’s next: On Sunday, October 25, we will have our first prayer ministry meeting. We will meet after church in the library behind the sanctuary. It will last no more that an hour and anyone who senses the leading of the Holy Spirit to be a part of this ministry is welcome to be there. This meeting is to begin the process of identifying for St. Augustine’s just how, given who we are and where we are in our church walk, the Holy Spirit would make known in our midst the whole concept of prayer and especially prayer for healing. If you sense the Holy Spirit nudging you, we’ll see you there.
