Service of Healing and Renewal

St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church, Shoreline, will be holding a Service of Healing and Renewal on August 11 at 7pm. With beautiful music, chant, prayer, and scripture, we will create an experience of healing and renewal for people struggling with mental health issues, and people who are caring for those living with mental health issues. This service will be a safe, non-judgmental space where we will offer encouragement and prayers of love and support. We will offer Holy Eucharist as well as prayers and anointing for healing. All are welcome, regardless of religious experience or belief.
