Our theme for 2017 was "CHARISMS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT" - The power tools for building up God's church
2017 was the 50th anniversary of Catholic Charismatic Renewal, and our programme took a close look at each of the charisms, guided by respected Catholic speakers, asking the Holy Spirit to “fan into a flame the gift of God” which is in us.
On this page we are giving links to resources which will enable you and your Parish to develop your understanding and use of the charisms of the Holy Spirit.
