To mark the Centenary of the Guild of St Raphael a servide of thanksgiving was held at Chester Cathedral, with the laying on of hands and anointing in context of the Eucharist. This Festival Eucharist not only celebrated 100 years of faithful prayer and ministry in many Guild of St Raphael branches throughout the world, but also celebrated the re-unification with the Guild of Health.

Originally one organisation, the Guild of St Raphael and the Guild of Health separated in 1915 to pursue two different aspects of the healing ministry. Now in the 21st Century it became evident that the time was right for these two complementary ministries to come together once again. So we celebrate the formation of the Guild of Health & St Rapael.
