Our first retreat, last April, was wonderfully successful, praise God!  Eighty per cent of the survey respondents said they would be 'Very likely' to come to another such event.


We are very excited about offering this new retreat to all Catholics in the Diocese of Rochester. It will present the basic Gospel message of Salvation through Jesus Christ through a series of special presentations which testify to the Truth that placing our trust totally in Christ does indeed rid us of the fears that so many are experiencing in today's climate of global, political, and economic uncertainty.


Powerful, uplifting DVD presentations of the missions and recent conferences of Ralph Martin's Renewal Ministries are certain to give reason to hope, not fear!  Live talks and witnesses by faith-filled brothers and sisters will be equally inspiring. And Mass, Confession and the Rosary will be available.


Please join us --  and Spread the Word!

See, darkness covers the earth.. But upon you, the LORD shines - Isaiah 60:2

Charismatic renewal isn't just a 'movement' -- It's God!  Touching people's lives in unexpectedly magnificent ways.  Undeserved, yet lavished upon us simply by our drawing close and surrendering our lives to Him.

This Renewal of the Holy Spirit began in the U.S. 50 years ago, and today more than 120 million Catholics in 220 countries around the world have experienced the extraordinary grace of this 'baptism in the Holy Spirit' (Acts 1:5)

So, Come and see.. what charismatic renewal is!  Read some of our personal testimonies; discover what our Church leaders and theologians have concluded; enter into worship with a music video or two.   -- And remember that you are always welcome to join us at one of the prayer groups or at our Mass!

The Catholic Charismatic Renewal is all about living out the Catholic Faith in ALL of its fulness and glory. This One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Faith contains everything that God has revealed to mankind for our Salvation in Christ and our Mission in the Holy Spirit.  Charismatic renewal would be empty and meaningless without this Catholic Faith.  Recently, at the request of many bishops and priests, Cardinal Gerhard Mueller, former head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, spelled out the fundamentals of the Catholic Faith in a clear and uplifting letter to the faithful, addressing today's growing confusion about Church teaching.  

Cardinal Mueller's letter has just been made into a remarkable and powerful video,  





We have begun holding regular charismatic Prayer Meetings every two weeks at the home of one of our leaders.  The meetings are not currently viewable on Zoom, but if you would like to join us, simply contact us through the “Your Inputs” Page, and we will give you the location for the next meeting.   

Inspirational Talks About Crisis by Peter Herbeck and Ralph Martin

In April 2019, RENEWAL MINSTRIES held their annual 'GATHERING" Conference, streaming it online.

Tens of thousands tuned in from around the world, including many bishops, priests and religious.


Peter shared his powerful insights on what he sees God doing in the world through this COVID-19 event, while Ralph  gave convincing encouragements from Scripture to 'be anxious for nothing.' We hope you will be inspired and encouraged by these talks!
