Life in the Spirit Seminars and Conferences

Life in the Spirit Seminars

The Second Vatican Council called for the spiritual renewal of the spiritual life of the Catholic people   It is hoped that the Life in the Spirit Seminars can be an instrument for the spiritual renewal and for the answering of the prayer which Pope John asked us to pray for the Council:  "Renew in our day, O Lord, your wonders as in a new Pentecost."

These seminars may be given to active church goers, to nominal church goers, to people who have given up the practice of Christianity or to unbelievers.   The Catholic Renewal Services usually is reaching out to Catholics who are in search of renewal and a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit in their lives.   These seminars have a primarily evangelistic character and are designed to take the basic message of Christianity and to proclaim it anew so that those who hear it can make a renewed commitment to the Lord in a way which will allow them to receive a fuller experience of the work of the Spirit in their lives.   They are not designed as catechetics or as a course in adult education or as a theological update on the charismatic renewal.

These seminars are put on by various pray groups within the Archdiocese as the need arises and are supported by the pastoral committee of the Catholic Renewal Services (CRS).


One to two conferences are hosted by the CRS each year.   The purpose of these events is to provide a venue where the people of renewal can fellowship, enter together into praise & worship of the Lord and grow in our spirituality as we listen to guest speakers who are usually gifted leaders within the Catholic Charismatic Renewal.
