Alton Day Of Renewal
2017 is the 50th anniversary of Catholic Charismatic Renewal. (See Renewal tab)
At the Pentecost Vigil celebration Pope Francis said: "We are gathered here, believers from 120 countries in the world, to celebrate the sovereign work of the Holy Spirit in the Church, that took the initiative fifty years ago and gave rise to … the current of grace of Catholic Charismatic Renewal. A work that was born … ecumenical because it is the Holy Spirit that creates unity and the same Holy Spirit that gave the inspiration for it to be thus!
"Thank you Charismatic Renewal, for what you have given the Church in these 50 years! Share with all in the Church the Baptism in the Holy Spirit; praise the Lord ceaselessly; walk together with Christians of different churches...in prayer and in action for those most in need."
