Welcome

Welcome to the website of Catholic Charismatic Renewal in East Anglia.

On the site you will be able to find out about future ‘Days of Renewal’ and other events, see photos from previous days and you can also ‘meet the team’ who will be serving you at these events. Past talks can be ordered on CD from the website for a very reasonable price and some of our recent ‘Days of Renewal’ have been recorded so you can watch online. So, if you were unable to attend, or if you wish to pass these talks on to others, you can order copies or send people to the website.

What is Charismatic Renewal?

Catholic Charismatic Renewal is a spiritual movement that has existed within the Catholic Church since 1967. It emphasises the availability of the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit for all, and encourages a close personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It operates through local prayer groups, communities, ministries and services around the world.

In 1967, some Catholics experienced the presence and power of God working in a new and deeper way in their lives. This experience of God, which they described as being “baptised in the Spirit”, drew them into a far deeper spiritual life than before. They wanted to give their lives more fully to God. They experienced his love more deeply, and appreciated even more deeply the spiritual riches to be found in the Catholic Church.

The Diocesan Service Team for Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the Diocese of East Anglia, exists to serve and co-ordinate the cause of Catholic Charismatic Renewal in this area, by supporting prayer groups, running ‘Days of Renewal’, and encouraging ‘Life in the Spirit’ seminars.
