Programme for 2017 Theme: The Charisms of the Holy Spirit
The Power Tools for building up the Church
To celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, we are taking a close look at the classic charismatic gifts most closely associated with renewal in the Holy Spirit.These are the gifts poured out freely upon the whole Church to enable us to fulfil the mission given us by Jesus Christ: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Mark 28:19-20
We have an exciting programme of highly respected Catholic guest speakers who will be giving us the benefit of their wisdom and experience, to guide us and inspire us to surrender ourselves to be used by the Holy Spirit for the building up of the Church.
