WI Healing Hands Prayer Garden

St Luke's, New Richmond, WI from lcefuppermidwest on Vimeo.

When the hospital across the street needed to remove its fountain, St. Luke's in New Richmond, WI accepted it with open hands.  Now installed on their land and beautifully landscaped, the community is invited to come experience the peace and joy of this Healing Hands Prayer Garden.

LCEF helped fund St. Luke's 2011 roof repair from an ice dam and assisted with funding for new staff including a Discipleship Coordinator.  LCEF - investing in your faith community.
