Newsletter: The Charismatic Renewal in the Catholic Church started during the "Duquesne Weekend" in Pittsburgh, PA, USA on February 17-18, 1967. Since that time, the Renewal spread from one small retreat group to over 120 million people, worldwide. This movement is renewing the faith of individual participants and is renewing the Church. The 50th anniversary of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal will be held in 2017.
