The Lord commands us to receive the Holy Spirit (Jn 20:22) and to "be zealous for the gifts of the Spirit" (1 Cor 14:1).  This means that we must go to any extremes to learn about the Spirit and His gifts, fruits, promptings, and works. We must intensely pray for all that the Spirit has to offer us and zealously use any gifts, fruit, blessings, and graces of the Spirit for the up building of His Church.


Seminar Series

Repeated affirmations by our recent Popes have encouraged us to embrace the charismatic dimension of our faith.  Bishop Barnes has echoed that call here in our Diocese of San Bernardino.  More than 119 million Catholics in 235 countries have experienced the touch of God through the renewal.

The “Life in the Spirit” ministry hosts 4 seminars annually.  Past seminars have been entitled:  A New Pentecost; 5 Steps to Reaching Jesus; Life in the Spirit and Sober Intoxication.  These seminars are complimentary and at no cost to participants.  Indeed these seminars are wonderful opportunities to experience the power and presence of the Spirit in YOUR life!  The current schedule for these seminars can be found in our church’s website in the Events tab – Life in the Spirit Seminar Series.


Charismatic Prayer Group

Monday Evenings: 7-8:30p
Life in the Spirit Charismatic Prayer Group:  Come Holy Spirit - “Veni Creator Spiritus”
Contact:  Silvia Sarver (760) 636-8005

This weekly prayer meeting is a unique expression of worship.  Music is an important element; as we surrender our hearts to Jesus.  It is characterized by expressive joyful praise, openness to the gifts of God’s Holy Spirit; healing and an expectancy that God will speak and work through those who have received His Holy Spirit.  Talks, testimonies, sharing and individual prayer are also part of this meeting.
