ORDER OF ST. LUKE
Where and when: The Order of St. Luke the Physician meets at Heritage Christian Academy on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 9:30 am.
What: The international Order of St. Luke the Physician (OSL) is an interdenominational fellowship of faith, prayer, and service. OSL members are lay people and clergy who believe healing to be an essential part of the teaching and practice of our Lord Jesus Christ, and who also believe that the healing ministry of Christ belongs in the church today. We believe that God uses many avenues for healing, some spiritual and some medical, and that these should be supportive of one another. Laity and clergy are invited to join OSL and to participate in the furtherance of the healing ministry.
OSL is the outgrowth of the Fellowship of St. Luke which was begun in 1932 by the late John Gayner Banks, S.T.D., priest of the Episcopal Church. It was incorporated under the laws of the State of California in 1953. The logo says, “Jesus, be to me my Savior (Healer), my Leader, my Light, my King, my Law.” Professional people, in all phases of medical work, clergy in the ministry of Roman, Orthodox, Anglican and Protestant Churches and lay people from all walks of life comprise the membership of the OSL. A common denominator is the conviction that the healing ministry of Christ exists in the Church (His Body) today!
