Holy Apostles Charismatic Episcopal Church of Westminster will hold a three-day healing tent revival, "Tent of Meeting," at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the church, 346 Old New Windsor Pike.
The featured speaker will be the Rev. Patrick Cardine, the provincial evangelist for the Eastern Province of the International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church.
He has ministered healing evangelism in many U.S. cities and around the world.
"We have seen time and time again that healing prayer in the name of Jesus almost always quickens and maximizes the time of recovery during medical treatment," said the Rev. Jim Ball, rector of Holy Apostles. "We have also seen many instances where healing prayer has miraculously succeeded when medicine has failed."
Holy Apostles was founded in 1998 by Ball and is part of the International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church.
