LIFE IN THE SPIRIT SEMINARS

2. The basic teaching about what the
Lord is willing to do for all who

Seminars are available for
The Seminars provide a way to learn more about living in the Spirit.
In the Seminars, you can take steps which will allow Jesus Christ to establish, restore, or deepen a relationship with you.
For Catholics who have experienced the sacramental graces, Jesus will give you a new and fuller relationship with Himself. The gift of the Spirit fills our whole life and changes us so that we begin to know and experience God’s love and the abundant life Jesus spoke of. “I came that they might have life and have it to the full” (Jn 10:10).
The Church has never lost the life of the
Spirit or the experience of the Power
of the Spirit.
God loves us so much that He sent His only Son into the world to give us new life. “God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him may not die, but may have eternal life.” (Jn 3:16). And He sent His Spirit to dwell within us so that we might be more closely united to Him tan we are to anyone or anything. “He it is who will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire”
