The Order of St. Luke derives its name from St. Luke, ‘the beloved physician’ as he is described in the bible (AV).  The International  Order of St. Luke was founded in the United States of America in 1947 by The Rev. Dr John Gayner Banks, a priest of the Episcopal Church.  The order began in Australia in the 1950’s and was granted autonomy in 1961.  It is now firmly established in Australia, New Zealand and many other countries.  From it’s origins in the Anglican Church in the United States the Order is now an International and Inter-denominational Organization which is widely accepted by Christians in all churches.
In late 2009, after considerable consultation with the membership, “OSL Healing Ministries” was adopted as the operational Trademark name of The Order of St. Luke the Physician  in Australia.  Whilst retaining the traditional and internationally recognised symbol and legal name of the Order, it was felt that the change to the operational name more appropriately reflected the mission of the Order in the 21st Century. The aim of “OSL” is to promote the understanding and practice of the healing ministry according to New Testament teaching, and to help to restore this ministry to the normal stream of Church life.  It seeks to work with all Churches and to offer a disciplined fellowship which focuses on healing as an essential part of the Gospel and integral to the Church’s mission.
