In the Gospel of John Jesus encourages us, “Let anyone who thirsts, come to me.” Jesus, the Living Water, restores and heals our wounds when we bring them before Him in surrender. The Family Life team invites all impacted by divorce or separation to a healing mass on Tuesday, April 30th at the Pastoral Center, Braintree.
Mass will be celebrated by Father Jürgen Liias*, OCP, of the Lazarus Center for Healing Shrine. The evening includes Eucharistic Adoration and Confession, music, a witness talk by Mark Gioia, a divorced Catholic; and healing prayers following the Mass (Mass expected to end by 8:15 PM). Information on resources and support will be provided. For more information, please call Emily Elliott at (617) 746-5756. Registration is requested to anticipate sacramental needs.
*Fr. Liias was an Ordained Episcopal Priest for 40 years serving various parishes in the Boston area. In 2013, he was ordained a Catholic Priest by Cardinal O’Malley, through a special provision of Pope Benedict for the ordination of married Episcopal/Anglican clergy. He serves as Senior Priest at St. Patrick’s Church in Stoneham. He has been married to his wife Gloria for 53 years; they have two grown children and four grandchildren.
