This year we are celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal and the 100th Anniversary of Fatima. CCRNO hosted a Life in the Spirit seminar entitled “Discovering Life in the Holy Spirit with Mary” on Saturday September 16th, 2017, at Pauline Books and Media in Metairie. The day was a wonderful blessing for all. Glory to God! We were very pleased with the attendance for the day. Everyone seemed to be open, and ready, and the Holy Spirit touched hearts. We had a total of 37 men and women and were thrilled to have about 8-10 young adults come, as well as some people from outside the area as far as Mississippi. Many of those who attended, about 15-20 were attending their first Life in the Spirit seminar. Other people were coming back after having been away from the Charismatic Renewal for 20 years. They were drawn to come and renew their Baptism in the Holy Spirit through the intercession of Mary. She was present during the day with her Spouse, the Holy Spirit. Others were active in the Charismatic Renewal but brought a friend to experience the graces of Baptism in the Holy Spirit for the first time. All in all, it was an amazing and anointed day for those attending as well as our team who were ministering. God visited His people and we were made new!
