Day of Healing Prayer
March 18, 2023
9:00am – 3:00pmCategory: Prayer DOHP | Coordinator: Jeanine Branham
t. Michael’s will host its 60th Day of Healing Prayer on March 18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the sanctuary of the church and is honored to have as its guest speaker the Rt. Rev. Andrew “Drew” Williams. He currently serves as the Anglican Church of North America (ACNA) bishop of New England.
The day’s theme concerns the Lord’s healing from shame and is based on this scripture: “Anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame.” — Romans 10:11
Following the morning teaching and worship service, a box lunch will be served in the nearby Belser Building; the $30 admission price includes the event, all printed material and lunch. The healing ministry at St. Michael’s Church started in 1986. It has grown under the guidance of clergy and lay leadership who all are actively involved and supported by about 50 trained lay prayer ministers. All the personal prayer time is completely confidential and takes place in a safe and comfortable environment, enhanced by inspired and calming music.
When the program begins at 9, it will start with worship and then turn to a teaching from Drew Williams and assisted by the Rev. Sean Norris. Then, the church will offer prayer ministry followed by lunch at noon. At 12:45 the worship will start the afternoon session and will be followed by the second teaching from Drew and more prayer ministry before the program adjourns at 3 p.m.
Drew Williams began his professional life as a corporate litigator in the United Kingdom from 1989-1998, but despite a successful career, it was during this time that he began to sense that something significant was missing in his life. Following a time of discernment and after much prayer and strong encouragement from those who knew him, he resigned from his law firm and began training for ordination at Trinity College, Bristol. He graduated with an honors degree in theology and was ordained in the UK, in Diocese of Exeter in 2000, after which he spent six years as associate vicar of St. Andrew’s, Chorleywood, a vibrant suburban congregation just outside London.
Beginning in October 2009, Drew was called to the U.S. where he served as the senior pastor of Trinity Church in Greenwich, Ct. Under Drew’s leadership, Trinity grew and became a multi-site church reaching out to many with the transforming love of Jesus, in the power of the Holy Spirit. On January 10, 2019, the Anglican Church in North America’s College of Bishops consented to the election of the Rt. Rev. Drew Williams as the next bishop for the Anglican Diocese of New England and he was consecrated as a bishop on March 16, 2019. He and his wife Elena have three wonderful daughters.
Sean was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pa. and is from a large family of seven children. He met his wife, Kate (also ordained and daughter of the late Rev. Dr. Peter Moore) in high school on a church mission trip to Mexico, and they have been together ever since. Sean has served many years as a leader in various churches and para-church ministries in Pittsburgh, New York City and Charleston. His call to ordained ministry arose out of a profound experience of being met in brokenness and pain by the radical grace of Jesus Christ.
He graduated from Trinity School for Ministry and was ordained as a priest in the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh. While planting a church in Pittsburgh (2011-2016), Sean and Kate welcomed their two daughters, Rhyan and Skylar, into the world. After serving for four years at Church of the Holy Cross in Mount Pleasant, S.C. Sean and Kate felt the call to begin Dandelion Ministries on Long Island, N.Y. where they create space for people to experience the grace of Jesus Christ in their place of need.

A Day of Healing Prayer is a time set aside for the Lord where participants can bask in His presence and receive completely confidential prayer from trained, experienced prayer ministers from St. Michael’s Church. The day also includes teachings on specific areas of Christian healing. Sometimes we simply need to be still, sitting in God’s loving presence to receive the healing of mind, body and spirit that He has in store for us. Things for which to pray: forgiveness, physical healing, grief (loss of family members, friends, home), broken hearts, relationships, career issues, etc.
