Order of St. Luke the Physician
The Order of St. Luke the Physician is an international ecumenical order for promoting prayer groups for healing in the local church.
The mission of the Order at St. Uriel’s is to make known that Christ continues to heal even today. The members of OSL in the parish work with the clergy to sponsor healing seminars, workshops, and prayer groups. In the past several years, St. Uriel’s OSL Chapter has sponsored workshops on developing prayer ministry and prayer teams. We have also offered seminars with such noted speakers as Fr. Michael Flynn, Kelly Ferrari, and Michael Ferris.
The Chapter teaches Christians how to pray for healing for themselves and others, and to encourage a sound pastoral and counseling ministry. A number of our members visit local hospitals, nursing facilities and shut-ins with the healing touch of Jesus. Prior to the Covid Pandemic, prayer teams were available in Lady Chapel after the Sunday Masses for personal prayers and intercessions.
