The Healing of Families
Father Yozefu-B. Ssemakula

Healing of Families Seminars...

Seminar Attendance:
There are no registration or participation fees required. Fr. Joseph’s seminars are free of charge. You may feel free to give a donation for the sustenance of his ministry at your own discretion.

Preparation for the Healing of Families Seminar:
Purchasing the now available, "The Healing Of Families" book on this website, and reading it, is the best way you can prepare yourself for Fr. Joseph’s family healing seminar. Try to complete the book’s Appendices 1-4 beforehand, and bring them with you to the seminar.

Training for Healing Prayer Groups:
Fr. Joseph is usually open to providing additional specialized training to parish healing prayer groups, ministries, and interested individuals using his very powerful and effective Healing of Families method. The only prerequisite for participation is to have attended the full weekend seminar beforehand. Arrangements can be made for this additional specialized training depending on local interest and time constraints.

Study Groups and Workshops:
If you are conducting a HOF workshop in your parish or having a study group on The Healing  of Families, please let us know so we can advertise it on this website.
