"'Anglican healing has nothing to do with placing the emphasis on a cure', explains Shelley Tidy, pastoral care associate at St. Paul's Bloor Street in Toronto, who for the past six years has chaired the Bishop's Committee on Healing in the diocese of Toronto. 'Everything is done in the name of lightening a person's burden by placing it at the foot of the cross', she says". "Anglican healing sacraments include the laying on of hands and anointing with oil, both accompanied by prayer. While performing the laying of hands is restricted to ordained clergy, anointing may be performed by licensed laity under the supervision of a priest". "Every year, Tidy runs a popular fall weekend program at the Convent of the Sisters of Saint John the Divine in Toronto to train lay anointers through lectures, practical training, group discussion and prayer".

Brenda Garvey is an honorary lay pastoral assistant at St. Cuthbert's, Oakville, Ontario. She is also multifaith chaplain at Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga, and a licensed lay anointer. "In 2006, Trillium hired Garvey to assist patients with cancer and other terminal illnesses and their families. 'Death is as much a sacred miracle as birth', says Garvey, who notes that when she anoints Anglicans with the same oil with which they've been baptized, 'they feel they have come full circle and been touched by God again'. As Garvey sees it, her job is to help people of different faith, or of no faith, have 'a good death experience'. By offering comfort and meaning, Garvey helps them 'to be present in each precious last moment'."

"Last October [2012], the Rev. Canon Joseph Asselin, rector of St. Cuthbert's, Oakville, Ont., observed St. Luke the Physician's Day by inviting Bishop Michael Bird of the diocese of Niagara to perform a laying on of hands at the altar rail after communion. At first, some in the congregation balked. Some even boycotted the service. 'So we went out of our way to make it non-threatening and ordinary, the way it should be', explains Asselin. He estimates that 70 per cent of the people present at the service opted for healing. 'It speaks to a need. Now that the controversy has died down and we have established trust, we plan on doing it more regularly', Asselin says". Includes colour photo. [Text of entire article.]

Notes
The author, an Anglican parish priest and member of the Order of St. Luke, an organization which promotes the Church's ministry of healing, describes the weekly healing services he conducts, usually in the context of the Eucharist. "One major change I have been considering of late is to move the laying-on-of hands from after the communion to right after the Confession and Absolution and before the Eucharistic Prayer. I have always been troubled by the redundancy of administering the laying-on-of hands for healing immediately after the Sacrament of Communion which is also for healing ("... preserve they body and soul unto everlasting life", B.C.P., p. 84)." "One last thought: I do not normally anoint with oil during the service so as not to depreciate the Sacrament of Anointing by being too free with it. If a person asks for it ahead of time and comes prepared for it, and even if I receive a special request at the rail, I am happy to comply. I suspect there are those who

Notes
"The role of the priest as the one who is charged by the community with the office of binding and loosing has been significantly confused to the point where inappropriate uncertainty of forgiveness may remain in the minds of the priests and penitent. The apparent consequence is that those using the BAS [Book of Alternative Services] rite of reconciliation may be using a liturgy where the individual penitent is not assured of absolution. Given this situation, we should respond in the communities in which we worship by educating God's people about the meaning and significance of the sacrament of reconciliation. It is vital that the way in which it is distinctive from the practice of the laying on of hands is made clear. Secondly, we should reflect actively on whether the new rite is really adequate and if we find that it is not, make our findings known to the BAS Evaluation Committee".
