Father James Northrop
Father James Northrop, pastor St. Thomas, Tukwila, WA is a very gifted Director and Confessor. He is a bold charismatic preacher endowed and empowered with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. For those coming for healing, he encourages them to return to Mass and the sacraments - especially Reconciliation - if they had been estranged from the Church.
He recommends that they increase their prayer life especially by adding the Holy Rosary if they are not already saying it daily.
