Lincoln Equipping Team

The Lincoln Equipping Team is a prayer and healing ministry whose mission is to empower Catholics to pray for one another and discover the healing power of Christ in their lives. This group was inspired by the work of the John Paul II Healing Center and the Day of Equipping workshop that occurred in Lincoln in August of 2017. Led by Fr. Craig Doty, a canon lawyer in the Lincoln Diocese, this team seeks to be open to the workings of the Holy Spirit, to grown and help others grow in intentional discipleship, and to sponsor events that further the mission of prayer and healing in the Lincoln Diocese. For more information please contact the Office of Evangelization at 402-473-0615.
