Holy Hour and Healing Service

Holy Hour and Healing Service will be held this Friday, April 6 at 5pm in St Mary Church in Freeport, IL. 

It is Catholic Tradition to have extra spiritual activities on the first Friday of the Month to take advantage of the 15 Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Here in Freeport we have a Holy Hour that focuses on healing. This healing can be any kind of healing. We tend to focus on the physical ailments we may have. However, it can be emotional or spiritual healing as well. It can from something that was done yesterday or long ago. It might be a person you have a hard time forgiving. It could be any spiritual struggles you may have. Maybe you have a hard time even to pray. Jesus just may be waiting to give the gift of prayer. There is no issue too big or small for Jesus in the Eucharist. Non-Catholics are even invited. All are welcome to the hospital of souls.
