Welcome to the Strengthening and Healing Souls ministry web page. Our lay ministry endeavors to encourage a deeper love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and our Catholic faith through offering retreats and conferences intended to strengthen and heal souls. We work with the support of our diocesean office in these endeavors.

What an amazing experience we just completed with our Life in the Spirit Seminars over the past three weeks! Last Sunday’s culmination of celebration of the Holy Mass as well as baptism in the Holy Spirit made it a very beautiful and grace-filled day! Many thanks to all who participated, to all of our group leaders and staff and especially to our Catholic Renewal Center presenters from St Louis!

Please remember that our Praise and Worship prayer group is a great opportunity to continue your journey of going deeper in love of the Trinity! Join us on Thursday evenings at 6:30 in the chapel at St Elizabeth Ann Seton church.

Our next Strengthening and Healing Souls Conference will be on March 24-25. This will be a Spirit filled weekend with some amazing speakers! Register now!
