We are glad you are here. Thank you for visiting this website. It is dedicated to the Holy Spirit and to His work in each of us. 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.
- Use the charisms of the Holy Spirit for the good of others.
The role of the Western Oregon Catholic Charismatic Renewal is to help, promote, assist and encourage Catholics throughout the Archdiocese of Portland and southwest Washington to grow closer to Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We do this by developing and promoting conferences, days of renewal, healing masses, training, and providing support and encouragement to the local Prayer Groups.
