The Catholic Charismatic Prayer Group will meet Friday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m. in the new Catholic Church rectory, 515 South Pagosa Blvd.
Since parking is limited, it is recommended that you park in the Pope John Paul II parking lot and carpool to the rectory.
At the Charismatic Prayer meeting, the spiritual charisms as found in 1 Corinthians 12 and Romans 12 are in evidence and encouraged.
The Catholic Charismatic Renewal was founded in 1967 at Duchesne University with Catholic retreatants including a professor, graduate theology students and undergrads. In one sovereign moment they were called to the Adoration Chapel where, upon arriving, each one received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. They spoke in tongues and fell in ecstasy and began praising the Lord spontaneously. The Charismatic movement has been waning in recent years in the U.S., but continues to grow in developed and developing countries in the rest of the world.
Father Don Malin, Steve Van Horn and Bill Norton will be facilitators in praise and worship. There will be a prayer meeting with teaching at the end.
The group meets every week on Friday at 7 p.m. at the rectory. All are welcome. Call Pope John Paul II parish office with questions at 731-5744.
