All are welcome to celebrate the healing, love and refreshment of the Holy Spirit at the 2020 Holy Spirit Conference Jan. 24-25 at Holy Faith Catholic Church in Gainesville. The theme for this event is “…I will fill this house with glory” (Haggai 2:7B). The conference will begin Friday evening at 5:30 p.m. Saturday’s events begin at 8:45 a.m. and will conclude around 9:45 p.m.
The Holy Spirit Healing Conference celebrates the Charismatic Renewal of the Catholic Church. This renewal is not a movement of people, but rather a divine move of the Holy Spirit that is intended for the entire church to equip us to fulfill the essential mission of the church to evangelize to all people. Gifts of the Holy Spirit, or charisms, are available to any Catholic who has been baptized. Charismatic Renewal is about awakening these gifts and utilizing them to their fullest potential.
The keynote speaker is Peter Herbeck, vice president and director of missions for Renewal Ministries. For more than thirty years, he has been actively involved in evangelization and Catholic renewal throughout the US, Canada, Africa, and Eastern Europe. Peter is a co-host for the weekly television programs The Choices We Face and Crossing the Goal. He also hosts the daily radio show Fire on the Earth. He is a frequent conference speaker, has authored When the Spirit Comes in Power and When the Spirit Speaks, and has produced CDs and booklets about discipleship and life in the Spirit.
“These conferences are a place for people to hear the gospel preached – I mean really preached with power – not just with emotion, but with clarity,” said Herbeck. “The power of Jesus’ words will penetrate your heart and bring you to the place where you can see your need for repentance and conversion. And then you can see Jesus as the antidote.”
Other speakers include Father Clyde Saliterero, a member of the Order of Carmelites, Philippine Province and Parochial Vicar at Holy Faith Parish, Tom Edwards, creator of Journey into Scripture parish mission which evangelizes internationally, Jean Roach, pastoral leader to the People of Praise Prayer Group in Gainesville, and Dr. Mary Shaw, missionary, team leader and charismatic teacher.
