Next Healing Prayer Gathering: October 28

The Healing Prayer Gathering, a collaboration between Holy Spirit community and St. Michael and All Angels, will meet at St. Michael’s and All Angels, 3646 Goldwater Canyon Avenue in Studio City, on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 10:30 a.m. Our discussion topic will be: Our personal saints – those who have been saints in our lives. Who is the person — whether now beyond this life or still in it — who has most influenced your spiritual path and the person you have become? You are invited to bring a photo or object representing that person. Each month we gather to discuss topics related to healing, share what’s on our hearts, and pray for each other and for others. We use a variety of spiritual resources in addition to scripture. Prayer can take many forms, and healing can be for anything that interferes with the full, abundant life we are promised. For more information, contact Rae Markus,

Just fun and good health under the expert guidance of Brandee Goatcher, our yoga goddess who leads us on a practice designed especially for us.
