Alton Day Of Renewal
Overall theme for 2021: ALIVE IN THE SPIRIT - filled with all the fullness of God.
"I ask each and all of you that, as part of the current of grace of Charismatic Renewal, you organise seminars of Life in the Spirit in your parishes" - Pope Francis.
"I would ask you to share baptism in the Holy Spirit with everyone in the Church" - Pope Francis.
In response to Pope Francis’ appeal, our programme this year follows the stages of a classic “Life in the Spirit” seminar series, exploring how the Holy Spirit inspires and empowers us to be missionary disciples.
THIS MONTH 18th September
Theme: "Gifts of Healings" - Special focus on charisms of Healing and Deliverance. Pope Benedict XVI said that Healing is "an essential dimension of the apostolic mission."
Guest speakers are Geoff and Gina Poulter, former Directors of he Catholic Bible School, who have over 25 years experience in the healing ministry.
Join our zoom mini-retreat morning and, through our worship at Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, prophetic reflection, praise and inspiring talk, we will find out how the Lord is equipping us to share his Good News with the world through the "Baptism in the Holy Spirit" - His empowerment for mission.
