Blue Mountain Health System Women's Cancer Support Group is providing the opportunity for a Service of Healing at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, at Zion UCC, Second and Iron streets, Lehighton.

The Rev. Allen Heckman will lead those present for the fifth annual Service of Healing, which will include prayers, laying on of hands, and anointing.

Women and men who feel the hardship of physical illness, plus the burdens that may be financial, psychological, mental, or social, are invited to this handicap-accessible church site.

It is the hope that after taking part in this meditative observance, the participant may feel his or her pain may be lifted.

Contact Mary Ann Hazel at (610) 824-6490 for more information.
