Life in the Spirit Weekend

Thursday, August 10th, 2017 by jgilbert

“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!

Thursday, August 10th, 2017 by jgilbert

Catholic Charities in conjunction with St. Mary
Parish in Rochester will host a Bereavement Support
Group open to all in the seacoast region. The group
will meet for 9 Sunday afternoons from 1:00 to 2:30
p.m. Meeting dates are: September 17 & 24,
November 5, 12, 19 & 26 and December 3, 10 & 17.
Due to previous commitments on my calendar we will
not meet in October. St. Mary Church is located at
71 Lowell St., Rochester, NH. We hope to have at
least six participants in order to establish a group, and
chose Sunday as our meeting day as many have
expressed how lonely Sundays are when grieving.
The size of the group will determine whether we meet
in the Church hall or conference room. You must pre
-register by calling Sr. Helene at NH Catholic
Charities 332-7701. There is no fee for participating
in this group but participants may wish to make a
donation toward the cost of books.
