A Safe Haven

Zechariah House of Healing provides a safe haven to experience healing, mind, body, and spirit through prayer, resources, education and retreats.  Honoring and affirming each person’s unique and intrinsic value, we are authentic witnesses of companionship and hospitality modeled after the home of Zechariah and Elizabeth.

About

Elizabeth Ministry’s Zechariah House of Healing, a Retreat, Production and Resource Center is located at the former St. Mary’s Rectory in Kaukauna, Wisconsin. Those who have fond memories of the Elizabeth Ministry Center located at the former St. Mary’s Convent in Kaukauna, will be happy to know that through a collaborative effort with the Kaukauna Catholic Parishes, we will continue to be able to use the facility for retreats and other events.


It houses rooms beneficial in hosting retreats, overnight guests for those visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, a Eucharistic Chapel, its Production Studio and a local Elizabeth Ministry Childbearing Chapter.

The Production Studio 

The Production Studio hosts a place to develop podcasts, videos, books, and learning management system programming. We are blessed to have an amazing team of dedicated individuals who have been trained as videographers, journalists, graphic artists, and media specialists to work on the production of our resources.

Our new production, NAVIGATE Betrayal, a program for spouses who have experienced sexual betrayal is launching on May 31st, 2022. This program will be a valuable asset to wives who are affected by their spouse’s sexual betrays. Additional programs will be created in collaboration with a variety of other national and local organizations.

Healing Prayer

Under the guidance of Bishop David Ricken, the Elizabeth Ministry International’s Ecclesial Advisor, The Zechariah House of Healing will expand our prayer support endeavors. Many of our staff and volunteers have been trained in various methods of healing prayer. Our approach will primarily follow the John Paul II Healing Center methods.

 

We have over 90 Religious Communities of nuns around the United States joining us in praying daily for all those who seek our intercession on their behalf.

Eucharistic Chapel

Franciscan Spirituality

Following Elizabeth Ministries Franciscan roots, Zechariah House of Healing takes on that charism as well. We are relying on the generosity of donors and volunteers help grow and serve those coming to our ministry. While some forms of spirituality focus on the divinity of Christ and the transcendence of God, we follow Franciscan spirituality that looks intently on the humanness of Jesus and embraces the power of redemptive suffering. Following the example of the many Franciscans who have taught us that God took flesh and became one of us not because of sin, but because of love, we seek to bring the healing love of Jesus to those we serve. Franciscan spirituality is a community experience. We believe that we learn from one another’s life journey. While some spiritual traditions are centered on unity and conformity, Franciscan spirituality acknowledges the charism given to each individual person by the Holy Spirit.
