Chapel of the Sacred Heart as regular cooperating priest since June, 2004.

He also teaches "The care of Heart," and has offered inner and physical
healing service in various prayer meetings.
Fr. Kinji Kawamura (

He has been in service for the sick around the world more than 80 countries, teaching the Bible courses.

The new URL address of Fr. Kodaira (O.F.M.) is as follows:

the University Chapel of the Sacred Heart and the first main celebrandt, passed away on September 24, 2006.
The charnel place is at the section for Jesuits in the St. Ignatius Koujimachi Church.
B1 F, Section S.
Late Fr. Bernardin Schneider (O.F.M.)
passed away in 2015.
May our Lord grant them the eternal beatitude in heaven !
Let us pray for them, and they will intercede for you.
It is supposed that Fr. Daniel McCoy
and Fr. Bernardin Schneider in the heaven has interceded
for the healings of the sick people whom are included into the
of the healing mass now.
Sometimes people mistake the similar healing mass, and ask
if this healing mass change the place.
But there are other
healing mass which is offered by other
priests and at other place.
We will inform if we change the place according to
the schedule of university by this temporary homepage, prints etc.
As long as there is not the announcement of the change of the place,
the place is the chapel of the University of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
One of the examples of the mistaken healing mass is as follows:
Place: The Chapel of Holy Mary of St. Ignatius Koujimachi Church
Date: irregular Sunday
Time : 14:00 or 15:00
The priest to offer mass (in usual ) :
