As mentioned in previous newsletters we have a 4 day healing mission here in our parish with the Littleway Healing ministries from Thursday 1st March to Sunday the 4th March.
Fr Laurence Brassill and Pauline Edwards and their team will be staying within the parish for the four days and firstly we are looking for Parishioners who would be willing to give members of the team bed and breakfast for their time here. If you have a spare room and would be willing to accommodate any of these wonderful volunteers please contact Father Marcin or Kathleen in the Parish office.
On sale in the repository are copies of Pauline’s book which many will find a valuable source of interest. There are also a number of posters at the back of the church that perhaps you would take away to advertise the event in relevant places.
We are hoping that you will be able to join us for the event and whilst you are here you may like to volunteer to help serve the refreshments at sometime during the day on Friday and Saturday. If you feel you could help please put you name and detail on the form in the foyer or contact the parish office by email: firstname.lastname@example.org

The Little Way of Healing is a Holy Spirit-led approach to the healing of memories. It is a charism gifted by the Holy Spirit to the Church of our time. This gift is a four-stepped prayer that through the healing of memories contributes to the healing of the whole person. Through this particular way of praying , Jesus shows himself continuing his work of healing amongst us today in the midst of his Church. People are healed so they can testify to the Lord’s working in them and thereby draw others to their Lord and Saviour, the Divine Physician.
In this way it is an instrument in the New Evangelisation for today’s world.
Little Way Healing Ministries has grown rapidly out of the shared healing ministry of Fr. Laurence Brassill O.S.A. and Pauline Edwards. They feel called to help parishes set up their own healing ministry which is a powerful and permanent witness to the Lordship of Jesus. People are amazed when they see Almighty God working through their own ordinary parishioners.
Little Way Healing Ministries is what we do: led by the Holy Spirit, praying for the healing of memories and consequent evangelisation through testimonies of the healing, the risen Lord is working in our midst.
New Spring is the developing (non-residential) community arising from those involved in this ministry, with at its core the founders and those we call Companions who have committed themselves for a specified number of years or else for life.
New Spring Trust is the charitable trust and limited company set up as the instrument for the acquisition of the international healing centre that is needed for the further development of our ministry and the initial and continuing formation of those involved in the ministry.
