Unbound Ministry

“Unbound Ministry is a vital part of the new evangelization because, through a simple method of prayer based on the Gospel, it helps us help others in moving beyond their spiritual obstacles into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.This model of deliverance reflects the power of our baptism, which moves us from darkness into the kingdom of God. It promises to be a very fruitful tool in the hands of priests and those involved in parish ministry.”
–Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.

Why is the Archdiocese recommending Unbound?

The Unbound Ministry is a critical part of the new evangelization because it helps us personally and helps us help others to move beyond the spiritual obstacles that prevent us from moving forward in our relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church. This method of prayer addresses areas of pain, sin, and weakness and leads us to lay claim to the freedom that is ours through our Baptism. Without this key piece, would-be disciples of the Lord risk getting stuck along the journey.  Unbound helps keep all of us moving forward and deeper into life in Christ. As each individual person begins to flourish spiritually, it brings life to the individual, to the family, and to the entire parish community!
