THE Diocese of Dumaguete is set to host a Eucharistic Healing Ministry mission of Fr. Jose Maniyangat on December 14 to 15 in Dumaguete City.

Maniyangat is an Indian priest who leads healing missions in the United States and throughout the world.

Msgr. Julius Heruela, the lead organizer of the two-day Eucharistic Healing Ministry celebrations, said that thousands of illegal drug surrenderees under the operation “TokHang” of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and parishioners in the Diocese of Dumaguete are invited to the healing missions.

Fr. Jose also invites the public who are seeking physical, spiritual, and emotional healing.

On December 14, Fr. Jose will concelebrate with Bishop Lito Cortes during the 8 a.m. Eucharistic Healing Mass at the Cathedral Church, which will be attended exclusively by hundreds of illegal drug surrenderees from Negros Oriental and Siquijor.

On December 15, at 8 a.m., thousands of parishioners from the Diocese of Dumaguete are expected to join the Healing Ministry at the Lamberto Macias Sports Complex.

But Msgr. Heruela said few weeks before the scheduled Healing Mass, certain talks on healing of family tree and spiritual warfare will be conducted for the drug surrenderees in the respective area of parishes in the municipalities and cities in the province.

With this, the Diocese requested the PNP to advise the surrenderees to participate in the gathering in the parishes to prepare them during the emotionally, spiritually and physical healing process.

Through the Eucharistic-healing ministry, Fr. Jose has seen many people healed physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.

“He will give a testimony that he died and rise again and the Lord tell him to do the healing, thus, people with various illnesses such as: cancer, AIDs, arthritis, heart conditions, eye problems, emphysema, asthma, back pains, bad hearing and many others have been healed completely,” Heruela said.

Meantime, the Diocese needs volunteers to assist the sick persons, elderly, and persons with disabilities who will attend the December 15 activity at the Lamberto Macias Sports Complex.

The organizing committee is also looking for assistance from benefactors to help defray expenses for the sound system, venue, and chairs rentals, among others. (PIA)
