The Taizé service at Christ Church consists of beautifully peaceful and spiritually calming prayer songs, silence, meditation, anointing of oils, and prayers for healing and reconciliation. The prayer songs, sung over and over again like a mantra, are often drawn from scripture and sung in different languages. Candles are the only form of light – symbolic of the light Christ brings into our dark world. Come to experience this wonderful, prayerful service.

Healing Prayer Ministry

We believe in the power of healing prayer ministry.  

Jesus was always willing to heal as we see in his response, as”I am willing, be healed” (Luke 5:12-13).

Healing was something Jesus valued in His ministry, and spent considerable time healing the sick, and those oppressed by the enemy. There are a number of dynamics that prevent as well release healing into a person’s life. Some of which include, unrepentant sin, unforgiveness, and generational curses. One of our values is that everyone can be equipped to heal the sick so we regularly hold training to equip the people of LVC to engage in prayer for healing.

Every Sunday morning we will have a time of what we call, Ministry, during our Sunday Worship Service.  It is a time when we can be prayed over for those things in our lives that need a touch from God, such as the need for ministry through healing prayer. Every Sunday we see people healed and touched by the power of God.  It’s really exciting!  To read some of the stories of healing that have taken place here at the church, visit our website.

Sometimes issues related more to the soul healing require longer periods of healing prayer. We have people who are trained, equipped, to pray for healing of physical or soul wounds and quite skilled at this level of healing prayer ministry  It is done by appointment only in a safe and confidential manner. Appointments last up to but not longer than 1 1/2 hrs per session.  This ministry is not to be confused with actual counseling. If you would like some prayer ministry, you may contact the church at 717-314-4720 or at and someone will get back to you shortly.

Our Healing Ministries

Healing Service

A Healing Service is offered each Wednesday at noon in the Memorial Prayer Chapel.  The service is a Eucharist and includes an opportunity to receive laying on of hands or anointing with oil from the clergy or our lay pastoral minister, Mildred Lorch.  When requested, the entire congregation is willing to lay hands on anyone needing it.

Prayer Chain

The Prayer Chain is a group of parishioners who pray in the course of their private devotions for people who request it, both within and outside the parish.  To make a prayer request, contact the church office or the coordinator, Anne Cousar, who will forward the request via e-mail to the the people on the Prayer Chain.  New “pray-ers” for the Chain are always welcome, so don’t hesitate to volunteer!

Prayer Partners

The Prayer Partners are parishioners who pray for those in particular need during the 10 AM Sunday Eucharist.  They stand to the left of the sanctuary during Holy Communion. Anyone needing prayer is encouraged to approach with his or her request. We are always looking for new Prayer Partners, so speak to Mother Gina if you are interested.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors

Lay Eucharistic Visitors bring Holy Communion, as well as encouragement and support, to those who are sick and/or shut in.  LEVs need to receive diocesan training before serving.  Those interested in becoming LEVs should contact Mother Gina or Pat Anderson, so that training can be arranged.

Christ’s Ministry of Healing

Healing people’s sickness, wounds, hurts, and brokenness was a principal feature of Jesus’ ministry, and Christians have always sought the ministry of the living Christ for our healing, including relying on those to whom God has given gifts in the medical professions.  But prayer is a part of the healing process too, and offering your prayers to God in your search for healing is certainly appropriate.

We believe that Jesus’ offering of himself for the salvation of the world, was and is his great act of healing, and the power of that act is extended to us every time we celebrate the Mass and receive Communion.  Herein is Christ’s primary ministry of healing to us: given day in and day out to his people.

At Saint Mark’s we especially offer prayers for healing at the conclusion of the 12:10 Mass on Wednesdays and Fridays in the Lady Chapel.  Following brief prayers, those who wish to may come forward to the altar rail for laying on of hands and anointing with holy oil.

Should you need the ministry of a priest at a time of crisis or emergency, please contact the parish office to be directed to one of the clergy.

A Prayer for Trust in God:

O God, the source of all health: So fill my heart with faith in your love, that with calm expectancy I may make room for your power to possess me, and gracefully accept your healing; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

A Prayer for the Morning:

This is another day, O Lord.  I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be.  If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely.  If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly.  If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently.  And if I am doing nothing, let me do it gallantly.  Make these words more than words, and give me the Spirit of Jesus.  Amen.

A Prayer for Sleep:

O heavenly Father, you give your children sleep for the refreshing of soul and body: Grant me this gift, I pray; keep me in that perfect peace which you have promised to those whose minds are fixed on you; and give e such a sense of your presence, that in the hours of silence I may enjoy the blessed assurance of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
