A Call to The New Evangelization
“It’s a response to Saint John Paul II and The New Evangelization,” said Deacon Brian Kerby as he described Intercessors of the Trinity, a relatively new ministry in the Archdiocese.
“Our focus is on the Blessed Trinity, the power of the Holy Spirit, healing through Jesus Christ, the love of our Father in Heaven and the example of the Blessed Mother’s humility and love for her son, Jesus.”
Profound testimonies of physical and spiritual healing have been documented from this ministry’s work, including cancer, addictions and deep, inner wounds. The Intercessors’ website includes a number of powerful testimonials about healings received.
The Intercessors include a number of lay people, trained by Deacon Brian and his wife, Dee, who pursue a deeper relationship with the Blessed Trinity, immersing themselves in a passionate quest to learn as much as they can about healing prayer. Several area priests and deacons have participated in this special work.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, the team has been led by the teachings of Church fathers, the contemplative prayer of Saint Ignatius and scripturally based healing and deliverance. Their goal is to increase intimacy with all three persons of the Blessed Trinity and to live out the gospel of Jesus Christ, experiencing a life of joy, hope and peace and finding victory in people’s lives as well as in their families and friends.
The Intercessors meet at a gathering place called The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park every Tuesday from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., with as many as 75 to 100 people in attendance. Occasional prayer and benediction services are held at Denver area parishes.
“It’s an evening of prayer that starts with a scriptural teaching and a talk about practical matters. It includes beautiful music in adoration of our God and ends in private prayer with those who have spiritual or physical needs,” said a member of the team.
To date, the ministry has relied on grassroots donations from people who are grateful for answers to prayer. Together, Deacon Brian and Dee, who is an integral part of the Intercessors, hope to develop a process to raise funds for a center in the western suburbs of Denver that would expand the ministry’s outreach and include members of the medical profession.
Monsignor Ken Leone is the ministry’s spiritual director. “I am so excited about what God is doing through the Intercessors of the Trinity, a group of Catholic people who love our church, who love our sacraments and pray,” said Monsignor Leone in a video testimonial video on the Intercessors’ website.
Monsignor Leone continued, “They have a vision for seeing hearts and minds healed. It really truly is part of the New Evangelization in the Catholic Church. It’s amazing to see how people who are witnessing the healings that take place are coming back to the Catholic Church and our wonderful Catholic sacraments.”
Intercessors of the Trinity has worked closely with the Archdiocese in an effort to bring its ministry to more members of the community. It has also established a fund with The Catholic Foundation to provide for the current and future needs of this healing ministry.
