At the heart of the archdiocesan Catholic Renewal Center is a grassroots mission to help others receive the Holy Spirit in their lives.
Prayer, conferences, spiritual direction, seminars, teaching and retreats are part of that work. To help expand upon those services, the center relocated its offices this past November from north St. Louis County to the former Sparkill Dominican convent at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Parish in Crestwood.
The annual Pentecost novena, organized by the archdiocesan Catholic Renewal Center, will take place May 15-22 from 7-8 p.m. at the Cardinal Rigali Center, 20 Archbishop May Drive in Shrewsbury. Each evening of the novena, a different facilitator will lead a reading of Scripture, a meditation and a prayer for the day.
Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, the Paul VI Institute and the Catholic Renewal Center are co-sponsoring a "Christ Alive Speaker Series," with four lectures to be presented on various topics related to living Christian freedom and joy.
All four sessions will take place on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon at the Cardinal Rigali Center in Shrewsbury.
Oppression and fear weighed heavily on the new homeowner who encountered a lost soul.
Walking into a room, the homeowner noticed in the middle of the floor a folder full of documents pertaining to a stranger's military career. The new inhabitant asked the neighbors about the person mentioned in the documents. The neighbors said they were about the home's previous occupant, who died in the war in Afghanistan.
