All Saints Church has had a Healing Ministry for over fifty years. This ministry began as a small Thursday morning Healing Service. Then in 1992, The Rev. Canon James Glennon of St. Andrews Cathedral, Sydney, Australia came to conduct a Healing Mission. This was the first of several visits by Canon Glennon whose teachings began to structure and establish All Saints Healing Ministry at the Glennon House.
The establishment of the Healing Ministry accelerated after the laying-on-of-hands and subsequent miraculous healing of Don Jaeger who was in the advanced stage of an incurable muscular disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Don’s miracle was the first medically documented healing of ALS.
In October 2001, as the ministry continued to grow, the Fortnightly Bed & Breakfast Inn located next to All Saint’s property was acquired. It was renamed the Glennon House in honor of Canon Jim Glennon. The Glennon House allowed the ministry to add individual healing prayer for physical, spiritual or emotional healing with trained Prayer Ministers.
Initially the anchor of the ministry was the Tuesday Evening Healing Service at 6:00 p.m. in the church. However in the recent years, The Glennon House has become the anchor for the Healing Ministry. The annual Healing Prayer appointments have increased exponentially. In order to keep up with the ever growing need for healing prayer appointments the Glennon House expanded its staff. We now have nine trained Prayer Ministers who pray with people for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Over the past couple of years, the Healing Ministry has begun to reach out to the community to offer Outreach programs. Currently we partner with some of the Senior Living facilities, work with a program for troubled teenages, and recently started a Prayer Card ministry for those in need of seeing God at work in their life.
The All Saints Healing Ministry is looking forward to where God leads them next in this Healing Adventure.
