We believe that all Catholics are empowered with the Holy Spirit at baptism and confirmation with extraordinary gifts, that when cultivated, will awaken a desire for God’s will and purpose for their lives. We strive to provide a compelling, straight forward approach to empower others to boldly claim, foster, develop, expand and awaken a deeper personal relationship with the Holy Spirit on a daily basis through a process of personal discernment, prayer, and small group sharing that will impact and transform the life of our parish, church and world.

Each year a retreat is scheduled. Participants in the retreat may also choose to attend five monthly Charism sessions to dive in deeper in understanding charisms of the Holy Spirit. Click here for this year’s online registration link.

Time commitment of volunteers:

CORE TEAM only: Bimonthly meetings, September through January. All day Saturday retreat in January, followed by monthly meetings February through May. No meetings during the summer.
