PRESENTER
: FR. ERICK QUINTEROS
Spiritual Director & Chaplain for Mary of the Angelus Association
Prayer Workshop Valerie Murphy (Co-Founder of the Angelus)

Profile Fr. Erick:
My family migrated to Australia from El Salvador when I was a teenager. After my conversion I felt God calling me to the priesthood and completed my Seminary Training at Wagga Wagga in New South Wales. I spent the early years of my priesthood in the confraternity of Christ the Priest and then became incardinated into the Lismore Dioceses. I met Father Vincent Doyle and he invited me to be involved with Mary of the Angelus Association and their outreach to God’s poor or Anawim. (Those who were heavily burdened by life's cares and concerns). Since his death I have felt the Holy Spirit empowering me to continue this form of outreach. To bring Christ’s healing love to those who are emotionally wounded by their life experiences.

As the Administrator of Kyogle Parish, the Holy Spirit has prompted me before Covid to offer monthly Healing Masses for the healing of our life’s hurts. I witness miracles of grace each month as people travel from neighbouring parishes to receive God’s anointing. The Spirits power to heal and convert us is a living testimony for all to see and experience. Jesus is truly alive.

PRESENTER
VALERIE MURPHY
Prayer Workshop Valerie Murphy and Fr. Emil.

Profile:
The Angelus Story is a message of hope for those called by God to the prayer ministry of healing and Intercession. It unfolds the spiritual prayer journey of two people who shared a vision to reach out to God’s poor.
The journey began in the heart of Fr. Vincent Doyle, a Catholic priest, in the Bellingen Parish of Mary Mother of God, in New South Wales, Australia. He developed a love and a desire to form a support network to bring God’s salvation and peace to the Anawim - God’s poor, who are heavily burdened and spiritually oppressed from their life experiences.
His desires were realised with the opening of the first Anawim House at Moriah. A Christian community offering accommodation and spirit filled prayer ministry to the oppressed victims of abuse and those suffering from relationship breakdowns. This community was under the administration of Valerie Murphy and her former husband Chris Housego who also desired to create a supportive outreach for God’s poor.
Valerie’s desire for this community had been matured from her own life experiences of abuse. She also was one of God’s poor and had benefited immensely through Fr. Vincent’s prayer ministry.
Under his direction she developed a love for contemplative prayer, Eucharist worship, and the Catholic devotional prayers of the Church. The Holy Spirit enlightened her about the role of Mary and the angels in spiritual warfare for the prayer ministry of healing and intercession.
Within a few years of administering Anawim house she realised the need for this type of prayer ministry was overwhelming. Many people were turned away and she realised how important it was to train others with similar backgrounds to hers.
Fr. Vincent and her self-formed and nurtured self-help groups in many parishes were ever they were invited to speak. The Angelus inner healing prayer ministry evolved from these workshops teaching the poor how to minister to the poor with the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the healing of life’s hurts. The Angelus Intercessory Prayer ministry evolved from these same workshops as participants were motivated by the spirit to pray for others in the world who were in need of prayer and healing like themselves.
