St. James Launches "First Sundays" Spiritual Healing Service

Beginning September 8th, healing Prayers will be offered, every First Sunday from 11:00 - 11:30 a.m., for anyone seeking

· Recovery from addictions

· Help in caring for those with addictions

· Healing of any illness - physical, emotional, or mental

· Healing for a loved one

· Support for something you can’t even name

In the Church’s ancient tradition, as people are comfortable with it, we will pray for healing with the “Laying-on of Hands” and anointing oil.

We are sharing, as far and as widely as we can, the invitation to:

“Come for worship at 10:00, if you like, and stay for coffee, after the healing prayers. Take time in our lovely garden to rest your body and soul. Or just show up for prayers, and leave when you like.”
