OSL Began in 1932

The International Order of St. Luke The Physician (OSL) is the outgrowth of the Fellowship of St. Luke which was begun in 1932 by the late John Gayner Banks, S.T.D., priest of the Episcopal Church. It was incorporated under the laws of the State of California in 1953. Professional people in all phases of medical work, clergy in the Roman, Orthodox, and Protestant Churches, and lay people from all walks of life comprise the membership of more than 7,000 at time of writing. A common denominator is the conviction that the healing ministry of Christ belongs in the Church today. 

OSL Canada 

OSL Canada was launched in Winnipeg, during August 2011, at the First OSL Canadian National Healing Conference.

More than 80 enthusiastic OSL supporters from across Canada and several from the USA attended the four day healing conference at the Mennonite University in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Delegates were treated to a wealth of keynote addresses and workshops on several aspects of Christian healing.  A vote taken at the business meeting resulted in OSL Canada being launched!

OSL Canada will remain a faithful and important partner with The International Order of St Luke the Physician, the North America organization headquartered in San Antonio, Texas.  OSL Canada will serve the Canadian network of OSL Members and Chapters with communications specific to Canadian interest and activities.  Our mission is to return the healing ministry of Jesus to its place in the church, to be a resource for individuals and clergy who want to learn more about offering healing during worship services and developing healing prayer ministry teams.  Our mandate is to bring the power and healing grace of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, to individual lives.  OSL Canada is poised to make a valuable contribution to the ministry of Christian healing, and to the growth of the Order of St Luke in North America.
