The Healing Prayer Ministry at Church of the Incarnation and I would like to announce a very special, upcoming event. On November 5, 2020, Alan Ames, a Catholic healer and mystic, will appear at Incarnation, in Charlottesville, and we are putting together a team to prepare for this exciting event. Alan has traveled all over the world, to Catholic churches, by request only. He travels nearly constantly, in fact, and has, by the grace of the Holy Spirit, healed thousands of people. Since 2009, one of our parishioners has been to see him 6 times, and each time, it was such a tremendous experience that words cannot describe it. This marks the first time he will be in our Diocese.
There is a lot to be done in preparation for the event, and we are putting together a team to help with that work. We will need people to be greeters, ushers, catchers, marketers, and book sellers, to name a few. If you would be interested in being on the team, please contact contact Monica Chappell at or 434-906-6926. We will meet virtually to make tentative plans so that we can go full steam when it is safe.
The Healing Service will begin at 7:00 p.m. on November 5 and will consist of Mass, followed by a talk by Alan. Then there will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, during which Alan will pray over each of those present (by laying on of hands). Finally, there is Benediction. During the service, reconciliation will be available (which is very important), the Rosary will be said aloud, by the congregation, and hymns will be sung. The entire evening takes about 3 hours, from start to finish; but many people leave after they have been prayed over. Additionally, books that Alan has written will be available for sale.
