(Community of the Risen Lord)

We are a Catholic lay charismatic community with the vision of taking the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to the whole Catholic Church and building mature Catholics who walk in the Spirit. Over the years we have been blessed to see the mighty hand of God upon our lives and our ministry. Many have experienced the Living Christ and have found great purpose and meaning in their lives. The Word of God says that we were created to praise God and that He dwells among the praises of His people. Our weekly Praise and Worship meeting is an opportunity to lift our voice to God in thanksgiving as He in turn replaces our burdened and weary lives with His strength and peace, falling at the feet of Jesus, letting Him minister to us through His Word. We learn to let go of our limited nature and allow God to take over our problems and struggles, relaxing into the faithfulness of His promises and His unfailing love. It’s an opportunity to fall back in love with God and learn about the spirituality of the saints, developing a deeper understanding of the Catholic sacramental life and the beauty of our Catholic faith.
