Spirit Come Down: Charismatic Prayer Seminar (April 25th-May 16th)
Are you curious about Charismatic Prayer? Want to try out this intuitive, creative, Spirit-filled way of connecting with God and others?
The Paulist Center Charismatic Prayer Group is hosting its Annual Seminar: Spirit Come Down. It’ll run for four Wednesdays, beginning April 25th , 6-8pm in the Chapel (includes group discussion and light refreshments). The sessions build on each other, but you are welcome to drop in for any of them!
The seminar’s purpose is to introduce Charismatic Prayer to newcomers, to invite those who lost touch with this prayer style, and to support those who wish to expand their understanding of its history and use it in their lives. This worship style utilizes many gifts of the Holy Spirit that are not made space for elsewhere. Our group includes intercessory prayer, sung praise, scripture-sharing, and time listening to the Holy Spirit through prophetic word, knowledge and vision.
Please call Nora Bolcon at 617-573-1664 or email her at email@example.com before April 23rd to sign up.
(No fee for the seminar but contributions are accepted!)
