St. Gianna Parish Welcomes
Rev. James Blount, SOLT

Thursday, November 21
Friday, November 22
Saturday, November 23

An internationally known exorcist priest of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT),  Fr. James Blount is a very gifted spiritual director and confessor who is empowered with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He lives his life in relationship with each of the Persons of the Holy Trinity—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He has a deep love for the Eucharist and the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Father is a powerful instrument of the Holy Spirit as evidenced by the many miracles, healings and conversions resulting from his healing and deliverance ministry. His talks increase awareness of the intense spiritual battle in our present world where evil has waged war against the Sacred, aiming for the destruction of holy family life. Father proclaims the Gospel whenever and wherever he can in the United States and abroad.
