St. Martin’s chapter of the International OSL Healing Community is an ecumenical Christian healing ministry and fellowship of men and women who believe healing is an essential part of the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ. The work of the order is carried out through teaching and prayer. Members are committed to intercessory prayer – that is, praying for others. They serve on prayer teams, sponsor healing services, and lead workshops and missions.

OSL grew from the Fellowship of Saint Luke, begun in 1932 by the Rev. John G. Banks, an Episcopal priest, and his wife, Ethel Tulloch Banks. Today there are inter-denominational healing communities all over North America and in many countries around the world.

St. Martin’s OSL Healing Community is part of this international organization that is dedicated to the Christian healing ministry. Guests are welcome to attend for prayer and study, or if they are simply interested in knowing more about OSL and its mission. Click here for more information.
