About Joyful Hope Ministries
Loved by over 1,000 people worldwide
We make things happen!
The ministry gave joyful hope to thousands of people and families since we’ve launched the Cross of St. Benedict Society in 2013 in the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross in Charlotte, NC.
We have over a thousand families who have accepted the Cross of St. Benedict sacramental. We have prayed with 5,000 individuals. We have conducted over 100 workshops. We have trained Joyful Hope envoys. We have reached souls as far as Western Canada and from the East to the West Coast of the United States.
Yet, the battlefield is immense. Millions of souls are lost to familiar family problems like drug addictions, divorce, disorders and physical illnesses.
You cannot be in the “line of fire” without proper tools and training and a strong prayer life. The clergy, who are equipped with the gifts to heal souls are overburdened with enormous responsibilities.
For this reason, our ministry acts as “First Responders”, we treat the wounds of afflicted souls in the spiritual battlefield and bring them back to the Church, which is the hospital.
Our ministry is our response to the call of Pope Francis who said, “In pastoral ministry we must accompany people, and we must heal their wounds.”
Our ministry gives “joyful hope” through the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, the loving guidance of Our Lady of Joyful Hope, and the intercession of St. Benedict.
In God’s mercy, He has chosen a once-broken family to minister to other broken families. For it is not us, but Christ who wants to give you His peace and healing.
We have dedicated our lives in the spiritual battlefield. We are on a mission. We need your partnership. We need the co-workers to spread the truth and help the wounded. You are the CO-WORKER. You are our PARTNER.
3 John 1:8
It is our duty to welcome people of this sort and contribute our share to their work for truth.
