Metropolitan Jerome OSJV on Saturday, March 29th will give the third in a series of conferences on Christian Healing at the Brighton Oratory from 2pm. The subject of this third conference is “Suffering” and will look at appropriate Christian attitudes towards “suffering” and especially for practitioners exercising a healing ministry.
Mgr Lloyd has over twenty years experience practising a healing ministry in a pastoral context and in a liturgical (worship) setting. Aside from studying pastoralia academically at university and in seminary, he gained invaluable insight in his youth assisting as a Brancardier with pilgrimages to Lourdes and Fatima and as an observer of Mgr Michael Buckley’s “El Shaddai” healing movement and the wider Catholic and wider Christian Charismatic Renewal movement. Later, experiencing Catholic Tradition through seminary and later ministry, Mgr Lloyd recognises the “gifts of the Spirit” and the possibilities of vocational realisation within a structural concept in sympathy with the praxis of the Early Church described in Scripture and the organic development of Tradition in the Church, applicable in a contemporary context of Christian witness.
The conference will begin at 2pm and after an initial presentation will be followed by Q&A and then an informal discussion over tea/coffee. ALL are welcome to attend from any Christian background. The conference will be broadcast live over the internet at www.dailymass.co.uk followed at 6pm by the First Mass of Sunday celebrated by His Grace (Lent IIII).
