St Charles Borromeo Parish, Tunapuna, recently concluded a nine-week Life in the Spirit seminar with 380 participants. Fr Ian Taylor, parish priest, called down the Holy Spirit during a Mass on October 15, from which many are still on a spiritual high.
This seminar, which ran from September 1 to October 27, had participants ranging from teenagers to an 83-year-old. Session presenters were Fr John Theodore CSSp, Keith Patrick, Gregory Quan Kep, Janet Chinnia, Deborah De Rosia and Fr Taylor.
Speakers reminded participants, their team leaders and understudies that, “We are all God’s work of art,” (Eph 2:10) and that we, “Must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” (Mt 22:37). We were challenged to be lovers of Christ and not just workers for Him. As Catholics, we are all called to desire Jesus, read the Gospels to get to know Him, and spend time with Him to grow our love for Him.
