“Come Holy Spirit! Renew your wonders in our day!”
This was the prayer of Pope St. John XXIII as he opened
the Vatican II Council. One of God’s answers to that
prayer is the work of the Spirit that has come to be known
as ‘The Catholic Charismatic Renewal’ which celebrates
its Golden Jubilee this year – the incredible life and power
and gifts of the Holy Spirit being spread to individuals all
over the world! This is the kind of life and joy that has
been promised to each of us by the Father!
If you have been searching for more of this LIFE, join us
on August 25-27 at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church,
Rochester. The weekend is designed to draw us into a
deeper, more personal relationship with Jesus leading to
an awakening to the power of our own Sacramental
Baptism and Confirmation. It is most effective when
approached in a spirit of faith, openness and expectancy,
leading to an experience of Baptism in the Holy Spirit, as
in a personal Pentecost.
The cost of the weekend is $25 and includes all light
meals and needed supplies. All are welcome regardless of
finances – scholarships are available on request. Sessions
will begin Friday at 6:30 – 9:00 p.m., Saturday 9:00 a.m.
– 9:00 p.m., Sunday 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. with many
breaks and free time. “Wait for the promise of the
Father; you will be baptized in the Holy Spirit.” Acts.
1:4-5 For more information, or to register call Jackie
Morganti, 332-3576 or email jspmnt@gmail.com. Even if
you have attended in the past, this is the Jubilee! A great
time to renew our commitment to Christ!
