Bethesda Healing Ministry is a Catholic Christian Ministry of hospitality and healing. Through a community of love and acceptance, all men and women suffering the effects of an abortion are invited and supported. 

Together those suffering share a rich healing journey through fellowship, prayer, the Sacraments, a structured scriptural/experiential manual, retreats, and days of recollection. 

In unity with the Sisters of Life N.Y., experienced leadership, trained companions and compassionate clergy, all who come receive and celebrate the forgiveness, mercy, and hope of Jesus, the Good Shepherd.

Bethesda in action in the Church and community…with the help of some friends:

  • Friday, May 6, 2016. Pontifical College Deacon Class on Marriage and Family for 4th Year Deacon Class through invitation of Dr Perry Cahall. Judy Schlueter, BHM Foundress and Fr Dean Mathewson will engage students in discussion on “The Social and Familial Impact of Abortion and Pastoral Response”.
  • Bethesda has been asked to be the ministry that the CYSC (Catholic Youth Summer Camp) does their “service project” for this year.They will take two afternoons and have the high school kids learn about Bethesda. Nancy will talk to the campers about the history of Bethesda, we will show them the EVENT VIDEO and then they will work on putting together ~500 bags for the Catholic conferences containing brochures about the ministry, prayer cards and contact information. They will also design ~ 50 “retreat bags” to use when the ministry team has a retreat. A member of the ministry leadership team will attend the session to share what Bethesda means to them, and be available to answer any questions the campers may have about Bethesda.
