“Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.” Romans 12:12
The ministry began in September 1997 as a response to the Holy Spirit to evangelize. A few families gathered regularly to pray and share the Word of God. Through prayer, Scripture study and fellowship, faith was being renewed and commitment to the Church strengthened.
Staying dedicated to the call to ‘pray and listen’; the number of families continued to grow at the weekly prayer meetings in Toronto. To serve the growing community better and to provide faith formation, the Ministry expanded its activities to include retreats, conferences, seminars and conventions. After seventeen years, God in His faithfulness, blessed the Ministry with a Centre in the Diocese of St. Catharines to reach out to more and evangelize.
Gethsemane Ministries is a lay catholic movement founded in 1997 in the Archdiocese of Toronto, to promote evangelization, strengthen Catholic faith, Christian family values and charity, through fellowship, prayer and reflection of scriptures. Further, the Gethsemane Ministries also serves the community by helping the needy and the sick, providing fellowship, spiritual guidance and counseling.
Gethsemane Ministries is a registered non-profit organization that preaches the Word of God and conducts retreats, seminars & outreach programs regularly. The ministry is led by Suresh Dominic.
Gethsemane Ministries’ mission is to preach the Word of God and advance the teachings, religious tenets, and observances associated with the Catholic Faith.
