11NSC7
Charles Whitehead
Insights on the Colloquium on the document, “Baptism in the Holy Spirit”

Conversion: Awakened by the Holy Spirit
05NSC9
Therese Boucher
What does it mean to choose God?  “We must be open to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit who will continue to convert us as we follow Christ.  If our faith is alive, it will be aroused again and again as well mature as disciples.” (Go and Make Disciples)  This workshop will consider 1) Charismatic tools for fostering conversion, 2) Conversion as a moment and as a process led by the Spirit, 3) Fostering personal and communal conversion, and 4) Four types of conversion, steps in the waltz of faith.

Ecclesial Maturity
05NSC11
Mark Nimo
On the eve of Pentecost 1998 Pope John Paul II called the Charismatic Renewal and all movements to “ecclesial maturity.”  What has that meant for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal?  This workshop will address a number of issues including the Renewal’s identity as a movement, but also as more than a movement, and its relationship to other movements.

Ecclesial Maturity
08NSC10
Renee Marazon
On the eve of Pentecost 1998 Pope John Paul II called the Charismatic Renewal and all movements to “ecclesial maturity.”  Ten years later, what has that meant for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal?  How can leaders foster ecclesial maturity in the groups they lead?  This workshop will address a number of issues including the Renewal’s identity as a movement, but also as more than a movement, and its relationship to other movements.

Fanning the Flame: 15 Years Later
05NSC10
Fr. George Montague
In 1990 a small group of theologians and pastoral leaders gathered in the Heart of the Church Consultation to reflect on Christian Initiation and Baptism in the Holy Spirit: Evidence from the First Eight Centuries and produced Fanning the Flame: What Does Baptism in the Holy Spirit Have to Do with Christian Initiation?  Has the research stood the test of time?  What has been the scholarly reaction?  What issues not addressed in Fanning the Flame should be included in any revision?  What does the Charismatic Renewal offer the Church in the present moment?

Formed By the Word of God
08NSC12
Al Mansfield
The Catholic Charismatic Renewal has been strong on leading people to a personal or deeper personal relationship to Jesus as Lord and the release of the Holy Spirit called “baptism in the Holy Spirit.”  The Renewal has been less successful in providing consistent and solid formation in charismatic prayer, the spiritual life in general and other areas.  What are the elements needed and how can groups go forward?

Full Role of the Holy Spirit: A Vision for Receiving all that the Spirit has to Give
10NSC14
Fr. Bob Hogan, BBD
The National Service Committee is “encouraging the awareness and the experience of the full role of the Holy Spirit among Catholic Charismatic Renewal groups and ministries, with the goal of reminding the Church to be fully conscious of this role.” (Mission Statement 1/09). There are four aspects: experiencing union with God; inner transformation, leading to personal holiness; ministry empowered by the charisms or evangelization and service; and building communities that witness to a renewed Catholic life.

Holiness in Mission
GNI Media
Fr. Richard Loch
“The time has come to re-propose wholeheartedly to everyone this high standard of ordinary Christian living.” (Pope John Paul II, Novo Millennio Ineunte, 31). We stumble because we only think of holiness as a task and not primarily as a gift. What is holiness? What can the saints who have gone before us teach us about the path of holiness? How does our baptism in the Holy Spirit help us on our path to holiness?  How does holiness relate to fruitfulness in mission?

Living “Baptized in the Holy Spirit”
12NSC8 (CD) 12NSC38 (DVD)
Deacon Darrell Wentworth
Baptism in the Holy Spirit is meant to lead to living baptized in the Holy Spirit.  To live by grace – “it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith, not by anything of your own, but by a gift from God.”  (Eph 2:8) – is to live the dynamic life of Christ in us by the Holy Spirit.  “Grace is a participation in the life of God . . . Grace is first and foremost the gift of the Spirit who justifies us and sanctifies us.”  (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1997, 2003)  Insights from the ICCRS document Baptism in the Holy Spirit will be given.

Liturgical and Pastoral Life
05NSC8
Bishop Sam Jacobs
“As experienced in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal baptism in the Holy Spirit. .. is a grace experience which touches every dimension of the Church’s life. .. “(Grace for the New Springtime)  In what ways has the Charismatic Renewal touched the liturgical and pastoral life of the Church?  What are some of the current liturgical and pastoral challenges for the Charismatic Renewal in the present moment?

CHARISMS

Charisms: Nuclear Energy of the Church
06NSC6
Walter Matthews and Sr. Mary Anne Schaenzer
Charisms have been described as the nuclear energy of the Church by Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa. What is the nature of charisms? How can charisms be best understood? An introductory review for the newcomer and an essential review for the veteran.

Do We Really Need Charisms?
03NSC16
Sr. Nancy Kellar, S.C.
This workshop will review the consensus understanding of charisms in the Charismatic Renewal in light of Church teaching.  What is a charism as opposed to a talent or learned skill?  What makes the charism of healing and the charism of helping or administration charisms?

The Gifts of Prophecy and Word of Knowledge
03NSC31
Linda Schubert
What are these gifts and how do they function in personal and communal prayer?  How might the gifts of prophecy and word of knowledge be yielded to in non-charismatic settings, e.g. parish council meetings?  The workshop will offer an exercise in yielding to these gifts.

How Do I Know What Charisms I Have?
03NSC17
Sr. Nancy Kellar, S.C.
How might an individual go about identifying his or her charism(s)?  How might leaders help individuals identify their charisms?  (Some review of programs such as The Catholic Gifts Inventory.)

Listening and Discernment

GNI Media

Arlene Apone

“There is no doubt that this primacy of holiness and prayer is inconceivable without a renewed listening to the word of God… a life-giving encounter.” (NMI, 39) This workshop will explore how (prayer) groups can grow in their listening to the word of God as a group.It will explore group or communal discernment so that groups can be more effective in being “doers of the word” (James 1:22)

Mercy and Related Charisms

GNI Media

Judith Hughes

Mercy is the charism that empowers one to be a channel of God’s love through practical acts to those who suffer.  It is often experienced in quiet, less visible ways than, for example, the charism of healing.  It is more about deeds. St. Paul instructs us that “Whoever shows mercy to others should do it cheerfully.” (Rm 12:8)

Pastoring Word Gifts

10NSC8

Chuck Hornsby

St. Paul told the Corinthians that “the gift of prophecy should be subject to the prophets because God does not want us to be in disorder but in harmony and peace.” (1Cor 14:32-33) After forty years of experience in a variety of settings: prayer meetings, retreats, and conferences what are some practical guidelines for the exercise and discernment of “word gifts”, including but not limited to prophecy, exhortation, and words of knowledge and wisdom. What is the role of the pastoral leaders and the group as a whole?

 

Praying to Release Charisms in Others
03NSC18
Aggie Neck
How might a group or an individual pray with others to release charisms?  Since yielding to praying in tongues is not a requirement for yielding to charisms, what role might it play for the pray-ers, as well as for the one being prayed with?

Stirring Up and Discerning Spiritual Gifts
06NSC8
Dave Mangan
How might a group or an individual pray with others to release charisms? Since yielding to praying in tongues is not a requirement for yielding to charisms, what role might it play for the pray-ers, as well as for the one being prayed with?

Tools for Identifying Charisms
05NSC26
Virginia King
This workshop will introduce participants to tools that can be used to help Renewal participants identify their charisms.  These include effectiveness, personal experience and feelings, and affirmation/confirmation from others.  A brief introduction to material from the Catherine of Siena Institute will be given.

Understanding and Fostering Prophecy
05NSC27 also 06NSC7
Chuck Hornsby
The nature of prophecy as experienced in the Charismatic Renewal will be explored, including its relationship to private revelation (see Catechism #67).  Listening for and delivering prophecy will be discussed.  Discerning prophecy as a body will also be covered.

Return to top…

CONVERSION/HOLINESS

“I have been crucified with Christ.” (Gal.2:19): Called to Conversion/Holiness

08NSC16

Tom Curran

Holiness is both gift and task.  Pope John Paul II exhorted, “the time has come to re-propose wholeheartedly to everyone this high standard of ordinary Christian living.” (NMI31).  He has called for a “genuine ‘training in holiness.’ ” What insights from St. Paul about conversion and holiness will help leaders grow and how can they help those in their care to grow in conversion and holiness?

Chosen and Appointed to Bear Fruit

10NSC16

Sr. Mary Anne Schaenzer, SSND

“It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain” (John 15:16). Bearing much fruit hinges on remaining in Jesus. “Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). Bearing good fruit doesn’t’t just happen. We are chosen, baptized into the Vine who is Jesus, and appointed to bear fruit. How does bearing the good fruit of the Spirit complement (or complete) our exercising of the gifts and charisms of the Spirit?“

Crossing the Threshold to Grace: Life-Giving Repentance
12NSC6 (CD)
Jim Archer
The Grace of God that has been so richly lavished on us through Christ Jesus our Lord, that which has both saved us and has been made available as a place where we can be transformed, longs for our returning.  We enter into that Grace by turning away from all that is not of God and turning toward His heart! It is this life-giving repentance that is the threshold to Grace! It is the “Refiners Fire” that causes us to cry out, “I want to be Holy, set apart for you my Master, ready to do your will.” (Pope Benedict XVI, Porta Fidei 3) – the call to holiness, “the summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the one Saviour of the world” is what the Year of Faith and, indeed, what living the Christian life in the power of the Holy Spirit is all about.im Archer

Freedom and Transformation through the Cross and the Spirit
11NSC17 (T), 11NSC30 (V)
Fr. Bob Hogan, BBD
Holiness is both a gift and a task. This workshop will focus on the task of holiness; the ascetical practice of holiness. Asceticism, as a way of cooperating with the Spirit, involves being discipled and disciplined; overcoming temptations and fears; dying to oneself and crucifying the flesh; putting off vices (compulsive sins) and putting on the mind of Christ and the virtues of Christ.

The Fulfillment of All Desire: Lessons From the Saints
11NSC9 (T), 11NSC28 (V)
Ralph Martin
Practical wisdom from the saints on how we can accept the gift of holiness

A Prayer Life That Leads to Growth in Holiness
11NSC10 (T), 11NSC32 (V)
Deacon Michael Cullen
Michelangelo, when once asked how he could sculpt such wonderful works said that he chips away until the beauty within is seen. Such is the life of prayer that leads to our growth in holiness. “This training in holiness calls for a Christian life distinguished above all in the art of prayer…we have to learn to pray as it were learning this art ever anew from the lips of the Divine Master himself.” (Pope John Paul II, Novo Millennio Ineunte 32)

Sons and Daughters, Chosen & Beloved
11NSC6
Jim Archer
The more we become aware of and experience the Presence of the Lord in our lives we begin to realize we are standing on Holy Ground, “For the Lord is Present and where He is, is Holy”. Suddenly everything changes within us and the core of our being is touched. We are not only aware that we are in the presence of the creator of the universe but we become aware we are called into His presence. We are chosen and beloved, sons and daughters of the Father who calls us and empowers us to be Holy!

The Word of God and Holiness
11NSC8 (T), 11NSC33 (V)
J. D. McGurn
St. Paul instructed Timothy that “All scripture is inspired by God and useful for …teaching them to be uprighted (holy).” (2 Tim 3:16) Pope John Paul II wrote in Novo Millennio Ineunte, “There is no doubt that this primacy of holiness and prayer is inconceivable without a renewed listening to the word of God.”  Pope Benedict XVI in his recent exhortation Verbum Domini (The Word of the Lord) encouraged, “the laity need to be trained to discern God’s will through a familiarity with his word, read and studied in the Church under the guidance of her legitimate pastors.” (84) The Workshop will focus on the important link between reading, studying and praying with the Word of God, and holiness in life.

EVANGELIZATION

Anointed
06NSC1
Peter Herbeck The Keynote talk from the 2006 National Leaders’ Conference.

Becoming and Everyday Evangelized New Evangelizer
12NSC12 (CD) 12NSC32 (DVD)
Martha Fernandez-Sardina
Confessing with the lips indicates in turn that faith implies public testimony and commitment.”  (Porta Fidei, 10)  “You will receive the power of the Holy Spirit . . . and then you will be my witnesses.”  (Acts 1:8)  We are called to be witnesses in our everyday lives as well as by giving testimony, telling our story to others about who we were before the Lord touched (saved, renewed) us, what the Lord Holy Spirit did and how we are living that out TODAY.  Everyone should know how to give a brief verbal witness and prayer groups need to encourage sharing of one’s witness and testimonies with an eye to reaching out to those in need.   This Workshop will teach how to prepare and give your witness as well as some help to prayer group leaders as to how to help their prayer groups become evangelistic opportunities.

Boldness in Evangelization
05NSC29
Caroline Gambale
Do you want to be part of the army God is raising up to proclaim the Gospel? The Spirit given to us is no cowardly Spirit, but the Spirit fills us with boldness for the work of evangelization (see 2 Tim 1:7).  “We must revive in ourselves the burning conviction of Paul, who cried out: ‘Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel.’ (1 Cor 9:16).” (NMI 40).  How do we become “bold?” Stories from real life experiences and prayer for boldness for evangelization will be offered. If you need more fire and passion in your ministry, this is the workshop for you!

Boldness in Evangelizing
06NSC9
Aimee Mangan
Do you want to be part of the army God is raising up to proclaim the Gospel? The Spirit given to us is no cowardly Spirit, but the Spirit fills us with boldness for the work of evangelization (see 2 Tim 1:7).  “We must revive in ourselves the burning conviction of Paul, who cried out: ‘Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel.’ (1 Cor 9:16).” (NMI 40).  How do we become “bold?” Stories from real life experiences and prayer for boldness for evangelization will be offered.

Bringing Charisms Into Family and Parish Ministry
11NSC14
John and Therese Boucher
Gain a new appreciation for practical ways to share the life-giving message of Jesus through the charisms the Holy Spirit has given you. Explore the ways that saints and ordinary people can witness and evangelize through parish ministries, in prayer groups, and on a one-to-one basis in everyday family life. This workshop will include time to practice mini-witnessing, praying with others and exercises designed to help people discover the gifts and charisms they have for sharing Jesus with others.

Charisms:Empowerment for Proclamation
12NSC14 (CD) 12NSC36 (DVD)
Jim Murphy
Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa once wrote that charisms are the nuclear energy of the Church inside each believer.  Charisms “whether extraordinary or simple and humble . . . are graces of the Holy Spirit which directly or indirectly benefit the Church, ordered as they are to her building up, to the good of man and to the needs of the world.” (CCC 799)  They are the “signs” that accompany believers.  (Mk 16:17f)  Without such signs the proclamation of the Gospel is often weak and ineffective. “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, therefore he has anointed me.  He has sent me to bring glad tidings to the power, to proclaim liberty to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, and release to prisoners, to announce a year of favor on the Lord.” (Lk 4:18-19, Is 61:1-2)

Evangelizing Families in the Power of the Holy Spirit

10 NSC11

Caroline Gambale-Dirkes

Can you imagine seeing the hundreds of new faces of all ages at your next Life in the Spirit Seminar or Diocesan Charismatic Conference?  In Familiaris Consortio, John Paul II states: “It is in fact to the families in our times that the Church must bring the unchangeable and ever new gospel of Jesus Christ.”  This workshop will highlight the critical need to reach out to young families, equip you with practical ideas and resources to attract young families to your events, offer dynamic and fun catechetical tools and transformational experiences that will engage a multigenerational audience, and learn ways to empower families to be evangelizers in their communities.

 

Giving Effective Gospel Witness

GNI Media

Brent Heiser

We are called to be a witness by our lives and to give witness by testimony. “Faith is both caught and taught”

What are the elements of a living witness and an effective verbal witness/proclamation?

Helping Others Become Holy Evangelizing Disciples of Jesus
11NSC13
Dave Nodar
The Church teaches that there are two universal callings: holiness and evangelization. This is our personal calling and mission. Those of us who have been baptized in the Spirit have been given power to be witnesses in lifestyles (holiness) and word (evangelization). The times we are living in are difficult and many people are looking for answers to their questions about life. The Spirit of God wants to help us lead others into a lifestyle of being holy evangelizing disciples.

Live Out the New Evangelization: Insights From the Synod
12NSC13 (CD)
Bob Valiante
What is the “new evangelization” and how are we called to live it out?  Insights from the recently completed Synod of Bishops on the theme “The New Evangelization for the Transmission of Christian Faith” and its preparatory material will be shared.  “According to Pope John  Paul II, the ‘new evangelization’ means to remake the Christian fabric of human society and the fabric of Christian communities themselves and to assist the Church to continue to be present ‘in the midst of the homes of her sons and daughters’ so as to animate their lives and guide them to the Kingdom to come.”

Jim Archer, Johnny Bertucci, Sandi LeBel
Can you imagine seeing hundreds of new faces of all ages at your next Life in the Spirit Seminar?  In Familiaris Consortio, John Paul II states: “It is in fact to the families in our times that the Church must bring the unchangeable and ever new gospel of Jesus Christ.” This workshop will highlight the critical need to reach out to all ages, equip you with practical ideas and resources to attract young families to your events, offer dynamic and fun catechetical tools and transformational experiences that will engage a multigenerational audience, and learn ways to empower families to be evangelizers in their communities.

No time for assimilation, no time for separation (saving parishes)

GNI Media

David Thorp

The Renewal has sought to impact not only the lives of individuals but also the corporate life of parishes in which we find ourselves planted.  What vision of renewed parish life serves the dual calls to the Renewal: to authentic communion and to be prophetic? What attitudes are essential to working in parishes fruitfully?  How can individuals and prayer groups more effectively serve parishes to which they belong?

Opening Scripture for Proclamation

GNI Media

Mark Nimo

“ This workshop will explore the importance of Scripture for witness, for exhortation and for preaching: in prayer meetings and other evangelistic settings. “Christ’s word in all its richness must live in your hearts.” (Col 3:16) and on our lips!

 

Paul’s Success in Sharing the Good News: Practical Help for Evangelization

08NSC17

Fr. Peter Sanders, ORAT

On fire for the Lord Jesus Christ, after his baptism Paul ‘began at once to proclaim Jesus in the synagogues’ (Acts 9:20). Yet the rest of his life would be spent in missions principally to the Gentiles, in obedience to the Spirit’s guidance. The many twists and turns of the Apostle’s life and ministry can disclose to the contemporary Christian the secrets of success in evangelization. Paul relied on the ‘demonstration of the Spirit and power’ to engender faith (1Cor 2:4). Together, let’s explore how he did that!

Proclamation of the Good News
06NSC3
Marilynn Kramar This stirring proclamation of the Good News led to a powerful ministry time and release of the Holy Spirit, Saturday evening at the 2006 National Leaders’ Conference.

The New Evangelization
06NSC4
Fr. Tom Forrest A challenging talk as we were sent forth from the 2006 National Leaders’ Conference.

Witnessing to Holiness in Today’s World
11NSC12
Jane Barz
“Just as he who calls you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written, ‘Be holy as I am holy’ ” (1 Pt 1:15-16) Often the places we work and the world we live in seem hostile to the life in Christ we strive to live and witness to. Whatever our work and wherever we are: we are called to witness to the gospel in all we think, say and do. This workshop will look at four attitudes that must shape our service to God and enable us to be effective as a witness to the holiness to which we are called.

The Charism of Healing and Prayer for Healing

10NSC 9

Bob Canton

All of us are called to reach out and offer prayer for healing when made aware of sickness or illness (may I pray with you?), but some have received and exercise the charism of healing, “so as to make manifest the power of the grace of the risen Lord.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1508). This workshop will address some of the issues in praying for healing for those who already pray for healing with others.

 

Discernment and the Use of Charisms in Healing Prayer
03NSC10
Arlene Apone

Overview of “Guidelines on Prayers for Healing”

08NSC13

Michelle Moran

Published by ICCRS in 2007 the Guidelines resulted from an International Colloquium on Prayers for Healing in 2001 and are based on the Vatican document “Instruction on Prayers for Healing.” “Drawing on the fruits of the Colloquium, these present guidelines are offered by the ICCRS Doctrinal Commission as on aid to applying the Church’s theological and pastoral guidance, both to those involved in the ministry of prayers for healing and to those responsible for pastoral oversight.”

LEADERSHIP

Achieving Unity in the Body of Christ

08NSC18

Fr. Peter Sanders, ORAT

The prayer of Jesus, “that they may all be one, as you Father are in me and I in you” (Jn 17:21) is a call from the heart of God to actively seek unity. This workshop will explore the obstacles St. Paul faced in achieving unity in the Churches he founded. Occasioned by these problems, his ways of thinking and talking about unity permanently changed Christianity. You will come away from this session with fresh new ways of being God’s instrument for bringing about that for which Christ prayed.

Those called to leadership are called to faithfulness.  Their service may change, but the call to faithfulness does not.  The call is to run the race to win the crown (2 Tm 2:5, Phi 3:12-14), to hear the words, “well done, good and faithful servant.”  What are leaders who have served faithfully for years called to be and do?  What are the issues facing those in their 60s and 70s?

Relating to Other Leaders
05NSC23
Josephine Cachia
Within the “communion” of the Church and the Renewal leaders are called to relate well to other leaders.  This workshop will examine some of the necessary components to “relating well to other leaders” as well as some of the obstacles.  “Submit yourselves to one another because of your reverence for Christ.” (Eph 5:21).

What Kind of Leader are You?  Leadership Skills and Leadership Styles
V       03NSC5
Jim Murphy
Many leaders are frustrated or frustrate others because they are not aware of the strengths and limitations of their leadership style.  We examine three basic leadership styles and identify skills that each type of leader should develop in relationship to key leadership issues, including developing initiatives and resolving conflict.

What makes a leader/new leader?

GNI Media

Chuck Hornsby

Leaders are those who have vision (sense of purpose and direction) and the ability to call or direct efforts of a group as they work together. Leaders in the Renewal also need to be men and women of prayer, holiness, commitment, zeal and humility. How do we identify the emerging leaders in our midst and call them forth?

“His praise shall be ever in my mouth.” (Ps. 34:2) Praise as a Way of Life

08NSC19 and 08NSC30 (DVD)

Aggie Neck

Praise is a natural part of life-it is the language of Heaven- it is a spiritual weapon to overcome the foe. Praise is like a garment we wear. (Is. 61:3) Three import things happen when we praise God:

  • God receives Glory
  • Our faith is increased and we are energized by the joy of the Lord that accompanies praise.
  • The enemy is terrified and his plans are confounded.

Hope for Prayer Meetings Without Musicians

08NSC20 and 08NSC30 (DVD)

Gerry Mader and Jackie Morgan

So many prayer groups today are without any musicians let alone a music ministry.  How can such groups have a time of sustained praise?  What can leaders do to lead such groups?  How do you release the gifts that will enable the group to go deeper in the Lord’s praise.

Foundations in Scripture and Church Teaching

Aggie Neck
We bring the sacrifice of praise” is both a Biblical exhortation and a Church teaching.  What is praise (and thanksgiving) in the Old and New Testaments?  What are some insights from the Saints (e.g., jubilation in St. Augustine and St. Francis).  Why is the Mass the“sacrifice of praise”. (CCC 2643).

Fundamentals of Praise and Worship

03NSC13
Judith Hughes
“Praise is the form of prayer which recognizes most immediately that God is God.”  (CCC 2639).  What are the elements of praise and worship and how can these be incorporated into one’s personal prayer?

Praise and Worship: Beyond the Music

10NSC12

Tammie Stevens

The Psalmist declares “clap your hands for joy, all peoples! Praise God with loud songs!” (Ps. 47:1) “Praise is the form of prayer which recognizes most immediately that God is God. It lauds God for his own sake and gives him glory, quite beyond what he does, but simply because HE IS.” (CCC, 2639). Praise and worship is more than a genre of music or something we “do” at a prayer meeting, it really is a way to live our faith.  This workshop will explore how we can grow in praise and worship in our daily lives and how a life of praise leads to a deeper experience of worship both in our prayer meetings and our Sunday Eucharists.

PRAYER AND INTERCESSION

Charismatic Prayer: Access in the Spirit to the Risen Christ

08NSC8

Fr. Larry Carew

In their very first encounter with the Risen Christ, the earliest disciples came into the joy of re-experiencing the loving presence of their dearest friend. They simultaneously found themselves freed from deep fears and guilts, even as they were healed of massive wounds of disillusionment and despair. Would Our Risen Savior be unwilling to offer us anything less?

GNI Media

Aggie Neck

The charism of teaching is listed among those charisms St. Paul says are given “to prepare all God’s people for the work of Christian service, in order to build up the body of Christ.” (see Eph 4:11-12). Some of the related charisms include encouragement, words of wisdom and knowledge, leadership, and pastoring.

Cultivating the Ministry of Intercession

10NSC17

Virginia King

“Intercession is a prayer of petition which leads us to pray as Jesus did.” (CCC, 2634). If we are to “move mountains” and “build a culture of Pentecost” we must cultivate the hard work of intercession in our personal prayer and in our parishes, prayer groups and communities. This workshop will explore a variety of approaches to increasing the commitment to persevering in prayer for the Church and for the world. This is foundational for any and all other ministry that we undertake.

 

How to Start a Burning Bush Initiative in Your Own Backyard
05NSC28
Fr. Scott Ardinger and Virginia King
On the eve Pentecost 2004 Pope John Paul II encouraged “the initiative known as ‘Burning Bush’ . . . [which] involves perpetual adoration, day and night, before the Blessed Sacrament; it is an invitation to the faithful to ‘return to the Upper Room,’ so that united in contemplation of the Eucharist Mystery, they may intercede for full Christian unity and for the conversion of sinners.  I warmly hope that this initiate will lead many to rediscover the gifts of the Spirit, whose original source is Pentecost.”  Learn how one diocese began a Burning Bush House of Prayer and some of the keys to forming intercessors.

How Do You Hear the Lord?
06NSC22
Dave Mangan
Leaders in the Old and New Testament listened to hear God speak before they acted. How are we listening to hear God’s word to us? Jesus said, “The sheep follow because they know his voice.” (Jn 10:4) We long to hear the voice of the Lord and to follow Him. How can a prayer group hear from God with some certainty?

Men of the Spirit

Prayer Groups as Schools of Holiness
11NSC11
Gerry Mader
“Our Christian communities must become genuine ‘schools’ of prayer, where the meeting with Christ is expressed not just in imploring help but also in thanksgiving, praise, adoration, contemplation, listening and ardent devotion, until the heart truly ‘falls in love’….But we well know that prayer cannot be taken for granted.  We have to learn to pray.” (Novo Millennio Ineunte 34, 32). This workshop will explore what role strong prayer groups have to play in the growth of its members in holiness.

Stir the Vision into Flame!
06NSC21
Deacon Bill Brennan
One of the greatest needs in the renewal today is a sense of vision — God’s vision of and for the renewal — burning in our hearts. But to stir this vision into flame we first have to catch it. This workshop will focus on catching the vision that is readily available to us in the Scriptures and in the teaching of the Church. It will include how to share this vision with others and how to live it in our prayer groups as well as in our personal lives. When the vision is alive, it will revolutionize our lives, the life of the prayer group and ultimately the life of the Church.

PROPHETIC CALL OF THE CHURCH TO THE CHARISMATIC RENEWAL

Building a ” Culture of Pentecost” and Other Challenges
03NSC26
Ron Ryan
In his recent statements to the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, Pope John Paul II has challenged us to build a “culture of Pentecost”.  What would such a culture look like?  What can leaders do in their own lives and families – and what can prayer groups, communities and the Renewal as a whole do – to build such a culture?

Growing in Faith and Virtues
12NSC10 (CD) 12NSC34 (DVD)
Sr. Nancy Kellar, SC
Many Christians want to skip the growth process and the dying it entails.  Christ does not intend that you be saved, sanctified and petrified.  Rather, “Do your utmost to support your faith with goodness, goodness with understanding, understanding with self-control, self-control with perseverance, perseverance with devotion, devotion with kindness to the brothers, and kindness to the brothers with love.”  (2 Pt 1:5-7)  Faith (believing, trusting, expectant) flows from an encounter with the person of Jesus Christ and is always based on the promises of God rooted in Jesus’ yes.  Growing in faith requires a commitment to grow in the virtues (cardinal and theological). “Virtue is a habitual and firm disposition to do good.”  (CCC 1833)

How Can Charismatic Renewal Impact Parishes?
03NSC27

Mark Nehrbas
This important pastoral statement of Pope John Paul II at the end of the Jubilee and the beginning of the Millennium sets forth a number of observations and challenges with which leaders in the Charismatic Renewal should be aware, especially if the Charismatic Renewal is to continue to play an important role in the life of the Church in this new Millennium.

Prayer Groups as Schools of Faith
12NSC11 (CD) 12NSC35 (DVD)
Deacon Bill Brennan
In his Apostolic letter, Novo Millennio Inuente Blessed Pope John Paul II challenged that “our Christian communities must become genuine ‘schools’ of prayer.”  (33)  In the same way our prayer groups must become genuine schools of faith, teaching not only the content of the faith, for example, the Catechism of the Catholic Church is a “precious and indispensible tool . . . at a systematic knowledge of the content of the faith.” (Porta Fidei, 11), but also how to walk in believing, trusting and expectant faith.  Practical examples of such teaching and best practices will be shared.

Rediscovering our Heritage:  Charism/Charismatic in the Documents of Vatican II

Overview
05NSC16
Fr. Richard Loch
On the eve of Pentecost 2004 Pope John Paul II said, “I hope that the spirituality of Pentecost will spread in the Church as a renewed incentive to prayer, holiness, communion and proclamation.”  What is the “spirituality of Pentecost” in Pope John Paul II’s thinking?  Hoes does it relate to baptism in the Holy Spirit?

Personal Holiness
05NSC22
Bishop Tom Flanagan
Holiness is both gift and task.  Pope John Paul II exhorted, “the time has come to re-propose wholeheartedly to everyone this high standard or ordinary Christian living.” (NMI31).  He has called for a “genuine ‘training in holiness.’”  How can leaders grow in holiness and how can they help those in their care to grow in holiness?   How does the “spirituality of Pentecost” provide impetus to this growth in holiness?

Prayer 
05NSC17
Dr. Carol Razza
Pope John Paul II spoke many times about prayer and about increased prayer.  In Novo Millennio Inuente he spoke of “the art of prayer” and said that “our Christian communities must become genuine ‘schools of prayer.’” (32-33)  How does the “spirituality of Pentecost” impact our prayer – personal and communal?

Proclamation:  Go and Tell It!

Young Catholic have more options for spiritual renewal today than they did in the last three decades.  In the Church today many young people have a steady diet of praise and worship, evangelistic opportunities, spiritual experiences, charism workshops and Bible studies available to them.  Still, many of these young people do not know of baptism in the Holy Spirit and Charismatic Renewal, but they would greatly benefit if they did.  This workshop will look at how the grace of baptism in the Holy Spirit can integrate the experience of young people and foster a culture of Pentecost.

Relational Evangelization in the Spirit
05NSC32
Michael Tigue
Based upon successful ministry on a college campus, this workshop will explore building a solid ministry on the grace of the Holy Spirit, teaching young people to use the gifts of the Spirit, and building them into a core community that evangelizes through small groups.

Releasing Young Adults into their Desting

10NSC13

Rev. Paul Anderson

The challenge to reach the next generation is not a “Catholic” issue. Every denomination, every ethnic group is facing the same issues. Rev. Anderson will share from his work with 60-100 young adults who meet with him every week in his home, and from the experience of the Lutheran Renewal, some of their wisdom, strength and hope.

 

Teaching the Truth in Youth and Young Adult Ministry

08NSC23

Johnny Bertucci

Many involved in youth ministry don’t think the younger generation is capable of dealing with the truth that Jesus Christ is Lord and He needs to be the Lord and Savior of their lives. We think we need to water it down or tip-toe around it. We think the youth are too immature to respond in any sort of legitimate way. The fact of the matter is: the opposite is true: They want to be challenged. They are indeed ready to respond in ways that would astonish us.
