The CFCI organized a weekend retreat for the Full time Pastoral workers as well as other community members from Goa from the 25th -27th of September 2015 at St. Pius X Pastoral Institute in Old Goa.
This retreat was on the Gifts and Charisms of the Holy Spirit and was conducted by Brother Benjamin Gonzaga, a lay preacher from Chennai, who is closely associated with Fr. Thamburaj, a pioneer in the Charismatic Renewal. Bro. Benjamin gave us an insight on all the Charisms available, 22 in all, based on Isa 11:2, 1Cor 12:18, Rom 12:4-6 and Eph 4:11-12. He reiterated that all these Charisms and Gifts are already in us by virtue of our baptism. We only need to stir them and use them for the glory of God’s kingdom. This is exactly what we did during the 3 days of the retreat. Continue reading →
