The Healing Ministry Committee of St. Edward Parish is dedicated to serving those in need of healing physically, mentally, or spiritually. Our goal is to reach out to parishioners in need and let them know that the church is lifting them up in prayer. Fr. Dan Reehil as spiritual leader of this committee will provide visits to parishioners and anointing of the sick as well. The committee members meet once monthly for planning of the annual healing mass and to organize other events to help educate and comfort those in need. The ministry also has “praying only” members who receive requests for prayer and contact parish members based on the request made. This might include an email, card, or phone contact.
