Empowered by the Gifts of the Holy Spirit for Evangelization and Healing
The Holy Spirit Prayer Ministry gathers on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM in the church. The mission of our group is to grow into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We begin our prayer meetings with praise and worship. Then we welcome the gifts of the Holy Spirit as experienced by the apostles in 1 Corinthians 12: the gifts of wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment, tongues and interpretation of tongues.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are freely given to any baptized Christian who sincerely desires to serve Our Lord Jesus Christ in an intimate and personal way. Our prayer team leaders will pray for the baptism of the Holy Spirit for anyone interested in receiving the gifts. Our desire is to use the gifts of the Spirit to deepen our faith for the purpose of evangelization: to “go out into the whole world and preach the Gospel of Christ.”
Ultimately, our Catholic faith is enriched through our relationship with God’s Holy Spirit. Our understanding of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is deepened, our desire to receive Jesus in Holy Communion increases, our prayer life becomes more dynamic, and our love for souls becomes an unquenchable fire within us. Many members of our prayer group have witnessed to the extraordinary miracles and experiences that have taken place in their lives after the baptism of the Spirit.
On the first Tuesday of each month, we have a FIRE Mass (Faith Ignited by Renewal and Evangelization) that features praise music. Click here to see the FIRE Mass Facebook Page.
We now have a Google Play site where you can listen to inspirational talks and music from our Pastor, Father Salvador. (You must be registered with Google Play before you can listen to or download any of Father Sal’s songs or talks. You will be required to provide a credit card at the time of registration, but please note you will not be charged unless you download something with a fee attached. Fr. Sal’s songs and talks are free of charge.)
Also available on our Google Play site are recordings from the Catching F.I.R.E. Revival featuring Fr. Dave Pivonka, T.O.R. These are available at a modest charge to download.
Although we are a distinctively Catholic prayer ministry, we welcome members of other Christian denominations to join us in praise and worship. Contact Colleen Criste for more information.
