  Who's putting this on?

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee's St. John Paul II Office for the New Evangelization (formerly known as the John Paul II Center) has invited the John Paul II Healing Center to present Healing the Whole Person as an offering of our Missionary Discipleship Institute.

The John Paul II Healing Center retreat team who will be with us for our Healing the Whole Person includes Dr. Bob Schuchts, author of Be Healed and Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT. For more info on the John Paul II Healing Center and their team, see http://jpiihealingcenter.org

  Is this really Catholic?

The Lord Jesus Christ, physician of our souls and bodies, who forgave the sins of the paralytic and restored him to bodily health, has willed that his Church continue, in the power of the Holy Spirit, his work of healing and salvation, even among her own members.
Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1421

Healing is an essential dimension of the apostolic mission and of Christianity.
– Pope Benedict, Jesus of Nazareth

Both the St. John Paul II Office for the New Evangelization and the John Paul II Healing Center are fully committed to faithfulness to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

  Who’s this for?

Healing the Whole Person is for those who desire healing, or to help others receive healing, within the Catholic Church. Past participants who have found Healing the Whole Person especially impactful include: those who struggle with anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, illness, or patterns of sin they can't seem to break, and those who wish to better accompany or minister to others who do.

While we've brought Healing the Whole Person to Milwaukee for the deepening formation of our Missionary Discipleship Institute participants, it is open to everyone.

  Why would I want to come?

For anyone who has lived with the struggles mentioned above, it can be difficult to imagine a life of freedom and peace. Participants in Healing the Whole Person will come to understand the wounds at the root of the struggles and how to bring those wounds to the Lord to receive the insight, healing, and freedom He wishes to give, especially through the sacraments and prayer.

  What can I expect?
  • Sound teaching from the Roman Catholic tradition delivered live (not video recorded) by Dr. Bob Schuchts and Sr. Miriam James Heidland, 
  • a supportive community of people (including some who are discouraged or doubting) who desire to understand and receive Christ’s healing, 
  • private journaling activities for application of teaching and prayer, 
  • communal prayer for healing, 
  • opportunity to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, 
  • and that no one will expect you to share about personal struggles you may be facing.

 

  When is it? What's the schedule?

Our next Healing the Whole Person Retreat offered through the Missionary Discipleship Institute in Milwaukee will be in 2020.

You will have the opportunity to exclude yourself from any pictures in which you do not wish to appear.
