encounter event

Saturday, October 24, 2020 from 10:30am-3:00pm @ St. Patrick’s Social Hall

St. Patrick Community is excited to be a virtual host site for this year’s CCRO Fall ConferencePower in the Holy Spirit!  Don’t miss this special opportunity to hear Father Thelen teach how to utilize the gifts God has given YOU and how Jesus wants to give an even greater share of his Spirit to those who are willing!

Most of you probably haven’t heard of Fr. Thelen BUT you want to – he is a young, vibrant, relevant and engaging priest that is bursting with the Holy Spirit.  He is a pastor at St. Patrick’s in Michigan.  Click on his name up above to see a video clip of his story.

Receiving the gifts and activating them for our individual mission is only an “ask” away!

The afternoon includes 2 presentations, prayer, and lunch catered by Jersey Mike’s. The cost is $10/person. This conference is ideal for anyone who participated in the “Called and Gifted” workshop, but is NOT necessary or a requirement.
