BLD: Life in the Spirit Seminar #21
July 19 to 21, 2019 St. Dunstan Parish Center, Millbrae
A Life in the Spirit Seminar (LSS) is a chance to EXPERIENCE God and the Holy Spirit in our lives. The weekend is designed to heighten your awareness of the Spirit of God working in our personal lives and in the life of the church, to break down any barriers the participant might have, and to create a greater openness to the fullness of the Holy Spirit. There is no fee to attend the LSS. All meals will be provided for participants.
Orientation and Pre-LSS Shepherding Sessions are required to prepare candidates before the LSS weekend.

A Grace of God
Accepting the Baptism in the Holy Spirit does not mean joining a movement. It means embracing the fullness of our Christian initiation. It can touch anyone and everyone. It has an effect on every part of the life of the Church, because it equips us to serve God and one another in love and power, and sends us out to participate in the Church's ministry in the world. It revitalizes every program in our parish because it revitalizes every person who is involved in the programs. Living in the Spirit means participating fully in the Body of Christ. It can make our parishes real communities of love, from which we take the challenge of the Gospel into our social and work environment. Our mission is the mission of the Church – to transform society. What is essential is the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit. On this and on the gifts of the Spirit I don't see how we can compromise. At a recent public audience Pope John Paul II taught on the charisms in the life of the Church. He explained their importance in this way:
"The people of God's sharing in the messianic missions is not obtained only through the Church's ministerial structure and sacramental life. It also occurs in other ways – that of the spiritual gifts and charisms."
