OSL (Order of St. Luke) Healing Community

St. Martin’s International OSL Healing Community is an ecumenical Christian healing ministry and fellowship of men and women who believe healing is an essential part of the teach of our Lord Jesus Christ. The work of the order is carried out through teaching and prayer. Members are committed to intercessory prayer–that is, praying for others. They serve on prayer teams, sponsor healing services, and lead workshops and missions.

OSL grew from the Fellowship of Saint Luke, begun in 1932 by the Rev. John G. Banks, an Episcopal priest, and his wife, Ethel Tulloch Banks. Today there are inter-denominational healing communities all over North America and in many countries around the world.

Becoming a Member

OSL has two categories of membership: Associate and Full. Associates complete a course of study with a focus on the healing ministry of Jesus. With the OSL chaplain, there is an opportunity for reflection and prayer to discern whether you are called to this ministry. After a minimum of six months as an associate and upon completion of the studies, an associate member may be inducted into full membership.
