HASTINGS (SNR) – All are welcome to attend “Introduction to Deliverance,” presented by the diocesan Office of Evangelization Sept. 14, beginning at 7 p.m. in St. Cecilia Parish’s Centennial Hall, 301 W. 7th St., Hastings.
The event will describe what deliverance is and how it fits into the Catholic Faith. The program will also explain a particular diocesan ministry, Unbound, “which is effectively extending Jesus’ power of deliverance in people’s lives,” said Father Andrew Heaslip, director of evangelization and religious education for the Diocese of Lincoln.
The Sept. 14 event will include four parts, lasting about 20 minutes each. The first part is entitled ‘The Meaning of Deliverance’ and will be presented by Father Heaslip. The second part will be offered by Matt Simmons, the coordinator of Unbound. He will focus on what is happening with the ‘Unbound Ministry’ in Lincoln, as well as the creation of an Unbound team in Hastings.
In the third part, Lori Weskamp will share her witness about the reality of deliverance in her life. Finally, each of the three presenters will offer a question-and-answer panel on deliverance.
Father Heaslip stressed that all are welcome to attend the presentation: laity, clergy, religious, non-Catholics, “anyone who would like a better understanding of the meaning of deliverance and how each person can benefit from it,” he said.
No registration is required to attend.
Unbound events are planned Oct. 14-15 at St. Teresa Parish in Lincoln, and Nov. 4-5 at North American Martyrs Parish in Lincoln.
