Augustinian Healing Ministry

For over 30 years, Father Albert MacPherson, O.S.A., has traveled the globe on a healing mission. He takes his special healing ministry to parishes and provides parish communities with healing Masses and retreats.

Born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1941 into a family of thirteen children, Father joined the Order of Saint Augustine in 1962, and was ordained to priesthood in 1974. He did undergraduate studies at Saint Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia, and Villanova University, before pursuing graduate theological studies at the Catholic University of America, Washington D.C.

After fourteen years of experience in spiritual renewal work, including ten years of pastoral experience in parishes in Ontario, New York, and Florida, Father MacPherson began full-time healing ministry in 1983. A member of the Association of Christian Therapists, Father MacPherson has given healing missions throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean Islands.

Thousands have been helped through his healing ministry - spiritually, psychologically and physically.
