Speakers named for July 26-27 Catholic Charismatic Renewal Conference
Registration is open for the 33rd annual Catholic Charismatic Renewal Conference, which is planned for July 26-27 at the Spalding Pastoral Center in Peoria. The theme is “Trust and Seek Refuge in the Lord.”
The schedule for Friday, July 26, includes a rosary at 6 p.m. and Mass celebrated by Bishop Daniel R. Jenky, CSC, at 6:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Cathedral. A community social with conference registration will follow at the Spalding Pastoral Center.
Speaking on Saturday, July 27, are Mother Adela Galindo, foundress of the Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and Victoria Harris, an author, speaker and worship leader from Dallas, Texas. There will also be eucharistic adoration, a healing service, and closing Mass.
Born in Leon, Nicaragua, Mother Adela became involved in the charismatic renewal as a youth. A powerful experience of Marian and charismatic spirituality led her to a deep love for the eucharistic heart of Jesus.
She founded the Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary in 1990 in the Archdiocese of Miami, and members of the religious institute have served in the Diocese of Peoria since 2008. The Sisters profess a fourth vow of “total Marian availability.”
Harris is the founder of Arise Ministry and author of “Holy Spirit 101.” Her mission is “to train, equip and send Catholics to operate in the fullness of the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the church.”
She is also a songwriter and recording artist who directs Arise Worship Ministry out of Mary Immaculate Church in Dallas.
Returning to serve as the music and worship leader for the fourth year is “Cajun Dan” Dúet, founder of Two-Twelve Ministries in San Antonio, Texas.
Registration is $60 for adults and $20 for full-time students. There is no charge for clergy, religious, permanent deacons and seminarians, except for meals.
A meal plan is available to everyone for $25 and registration for this must be postmarked by July 11.
