“I baptize you with water for repentance… He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” (Matthew 3:11)

A one-day Life in the Spirit Seminar is coming to IHM on Saturday, October 21. Through music, teaching, small groups and personal testimonies, a Life in the Spirit proclaims the central gospel truths of the Father’s love, salvation offered in Jesus and an abundant new life in the power of the Holy Spirit, and how to respond to that message by welcoming the Holy Spirit in new and powerful ways through openness to the person and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit calls us to transformation, holiness and service, and empowers us through a personal Pentecost that activates the graces of Baptism and Confirmation to bring into reality Christ’s promise to make us prophets, witnesses, evangelists, teachers and healers.
Come and add your voice to St. John Paul II’s plea: “I wish to cry out to all of you...open yourselves docilely to the gifts of the Spirit!” Come and receive all God has to give you! Come and discover a way of life in which your heart is ignited with the life of the Holy Spirit!
