Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle invites the faithful to join the 8th National Catholic Charismatic Congress from June 6-8 “to help discover God’s plan for you.”
With the theme “One Body, One Spirit, One Charis,” the three-day gathering, which is expected to draw more than 3,000 participants, will be held at the El Shaddai International House of Prayer in Parañaque City. The event is part of the 50th year celebration of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the Philippines.
Congress president Bro. Marcelino Catan also invited small Charismatic groups to join the gathering as a way of celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the country.
“The three-day event is very significant for charismatic groups in the country because the National Catholic Charismatic Congress, which is held every 2 to 3 years, coincides with the 50th year of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the Philippines and the National Pentecost celebration,” Catan said.
