Note: in-person Healing Pathway sessions were discontinued during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the group will be making a decision in coming months regarding in-person sessions.  Prayer requests for “distance healing” may still be sent to healing@ralphconnor.ca

Healing Pathway is a practice of gentle touch that supports the healing of body, mind, and spirit. Rooted in the ancient Christian tradition of laying on of hands, this service is offered free to anyone seeking the Spirit’s healing grace, at whatever stage of life or health.

A session of Healing Pathway is a gift to one’s self – nurturing and restorative. You are invited to relax, fully clothed, on the massage table, and our trained practitioners will offer a healing method suited to your needs. The sessions are private and confidential, and take place in the peaceful sanctuary in Canmore at Ralph Connor Memorial United Church.

The foundation of the program lies in the long tradition of healing within the Christian faith. Healing is not just something Jesus and the early Christians did, it is an expression of the deeper realities of faith, compassion, forgiveness and caring for one another. The intention to be fully present with another in God’s unconditional love creates the opportunity for healing. For early Christians, healing was part of what it meant to be a follower of Jesus, and the Healing Pathway is built on those ancient roots.

Started by Rochelle Graham, a Healing Touch practitioner, the Healing Pathway program was centred at the United Church of Canada’s Naramata Centre in BC from 1993 until 2015, when it became an incorporated society. In that time, training for practitioners has expanded across Canada. Today over 100 congregations, have Healing Pathway ministries. The healing ministry finds its home mostly within, but is not limited to, United Church congregations.  Our Ralph Connor group has members from Banff, Canmore, and Harvie Heights.
