Coming Events at St. Philomena

Healing the Whole Person

In a world full of brokenness, Christ has come to offer us new life. The central mission of the gospel is to pave the way for us to reclaim our whole human identity. Join us on this journey as we enter into the heart, face the pains and wounds within, and allow Christ’s divine love to bring the healing we ardently desire. Talks by Dr. Bob Schuchts include: Introduction to Healing the Whole Person, Facing our Brokenness, Prayer for Inner Healing, and Living in Freedom. The conference will be Thursday and Friday evenings, 6:45 to 9:30pm and Saturday 8:00am to 4:00pm. Register at Cost is $175. Scholarships are available.
