This website is dedicated to the Holy Spirit.  The works of the Holy Spirit are shown in the Holy Bible, especially in the New Testament.  They are also evident today, in the lives of faithful Catholics.

The Catholic Charismatic Renewal began in 1967 at “The Ark and the Dove Retreat Center” north of Pittsburgh, PA.  Since the beginning, it encourages all Catholics to seek a deeper, personal relationship with God.  One way is through “baptism in the Holy Spirit.”

This Charismatic Renewal in the Church challenges each of us to:

  • Be filled with the wonder and awe of the Holy Spirit — the third Person of the Holy Trinity.
  • Learn about and accept the gifts and charisms of the Holy Spirit.
  • Cooperate with the prompting of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
  • Apply the charisms of the Holy Spirit for the good of others.

Browse a bit now and come back as often as you can.  Expect the Holy Spirit to guide you and bless you each day!
