Dr. Mary Healy will conduct an all-day (8 am – 4 pm) retreat at St. Francis of Assisi Parish, 2450 NE 27th St, Bend, OR 97701.

Her main interests include faith healingevangelization, and Catholic spirituality.   Dr. Healy was one of the first women appointed by Pope Francis in 2014 to the Pontifical Biblical Commission.

Deacon Steve McGlone, who is part of the planning committee at the parish, is asking us to join his prayer team and pray for this event from today until September 21st. Please join in this effort. I am including his prayer ministry description — Prayer Warrior Job Description. You don’t have to respond to them or me — just pray.

I saw the result of many people praying in advance of an event earlier this year when the John Paul II conference on Healing the Whole person came to Portland and several other arterial locations.   Our Lady of Lavang was packed.  I would say close to 1500 people, that does not include the secondary locations and the streaming.

WOCCR invites you to a Day of Renewal at Our Lady of the Lake Church Parish Center in Lake Oswego, OR. The time is not secure yet, but should be around 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Theme: Spiritual Warfare

Fr. Tim Furlow and Dr. Lynne Bissonette-Pitre will help us understand what that really is and how we as the charismatic renewal fit in.
