Living Water Prayer Group is a charismatic prayer group

We gather together to praise and worship God through song and spontaneous prayer. We pray for one another for God’s healing, strength and peace. We also intercede for the needs of others and for the world. Everyone is invited. You do not have to consider yourself charismatic to attend our prayer meetings. All you need is a desire to give glory and honor and praise to God. We invite you to come also to receive prayer for your own healing and your own needs. We meet every Monday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the St. Ann Room in the St. Scholastica Center.

for more information please contact Teresa Sweedyk 455-0500

Pastoral Care of the Sick

Pastoral Care of the Sick is the ministry to those who are ill, especially those admitted to hospitals and nursing homes, as well as the homebound. Pastoral Ministers to the Sick serve as representatives of the Church of Saint Benedict in reaching out with Christ-like concern, to others in a time of need. Volunteers are normally scheduled to visit the sick once each month. An orientation and training session is provided to equip volunteers with the skills needed to begin this ministry. For more information,
