-New Charismatic Renewal Retreat-

August 22-24, 2017  7:00-9:30 p.m. each night
Guardian Angels Church, Henrietta


Three Consecutive Evenings:


* The Desert Experience --- Fr. Dave Pivonka

* Power of Forgiveness ---- Sr. Miriam James Heidland

In the Spirit of the New Evangelism , we are asking everybody to strongly consider 
bringing a friend or relative with you to this Retreat.  For this reason, Admission is free of charge. T
he three programs are all inter-connected and yet separate. So, if you or your guest can only attend one or two, it will still be a full and grace-filled experience. Professionally-made DVDs plus Live Witnesses and Music Ministry.

Stay tuned for details!    ___________________________________________

Our first retreat, last April, was wonderfully successful, praise God!  Eighty per cent of the survey respondents said they would be 'Very likely' to come to another such event.


We are very excited about offering this new retreat to all Catholics in the Diocese of Rochester. It will present the basic Gospel message of Salvation through Jesus Christ through a series of special presentations which testify to the Truth that placing our trust totally in Christ does indeed rid us of the fears that so many are experiencing in today's climate of global, political, and economic uncertainty.


Powerful, uplifting DVD presentations of the missions and recent conferences of Ralph Martin's Renewal Ministries are certain to give reason to hope, not fear!  Live talks and witnesses by faith-filled brothers and sisters will be equally inspiring. And Mass, Confession and the Rosary will be available.


Please join us --  and Spread the Word!

See, darkness covers the earth.. But upon you, the LORD shines!  - Isaiah 60:2

Charismatic renewal isn't just a 'movement' -- It's God!  Touching people's lives in unexpectedly magnificent ways.  Undeserved, yet lavished upon us simply by our drawing close and surrendering our lives to Him.

This Renewal of the Holy Spirit began in the U.S. 50 years ago, and today more than 120 million Catholics in 220 countries around the world have experienced the extraordinary grace of this 'baptism in the Holy Spirit' (Acts 1:5).


So, Come and see.. what charismatic renewal is!  Read some of our personal testimonies; discover what our Church leaders and theologians have concluded; enter into worship with a music video or two.   -- And remember that you are always welcome to join us at one of the prayer groups or at our Mass!
