Catholic Miracle Rally (North)

We are so excited that Damian is able to come north again and this time launch the Catholic Miracle Rally in the North, this Spring.
The Catholic Miracle Rally has been running in London for over 10 years and draws over 1000 people each year. Encouraging the Renewal in the South to believe for God do more of what He has promised in the power of the Spirit. It is so amazing and encouraging to have seen the crippled and lame walk and run from sticks, crutches and wheelchairs!, hearing aids discarded, cancers and tumours disappear and so much more. God is really alive and active!
We will be running the Catholic Miracle Rally (North) in Preston 9-10th March 2019. Bishop Paul Swarbrick is attending and has been very supportive which is great. See this leaflet for more details (includes the booking form).

To get there, there are excellent directions on the school website but to find the school on an interactive map try this link


Breathe - a day of affirmation and blessing for Educators

Since 2017, a team of educators involved in Catholic Charismatic Renewal have been meeting to plan how to support faith-filled people working in schools, many of whom are isolated. The outcome of this planning is a day conference entitled 'Breathe - a day of affirmation and blessing for Educators' to be held at St Aloysius Church, 20 Phoenix Road, London NW1 1TA (5 mins from Euston Station) on 30th March 2019, 9.30am – 4.30pm. Keynote sessions will be delivered by David Wells (internationally renowned speaker in faith and education), Fr Michael Hall (Director of Barnabas Education Services), and Claire Fernandes (Teacher and Lecturer in Primary RE at St Mary’s University). One Hope Project will lead worship.

Please see this flyer.

Pope Benedict, addressing the Bishops of the Philippines in 2011, said "People are able to evangelise only when they have been evangelised, that is, renewed spiritually through a personal encounter and lived communion with Jesus Christ." 'Breathe' aims to offer educators whose lives have been transformed through a personal encounter with Christ the opportunity to replenish their reservoirs of faith, hope and love, so that they can continue to be effective witnesses in the schools where they work. Among the plethora of influences on young people, there is a pressing need for an authentic witness of God's unconditional love. 'Breathe' seeks to address that need by nourishing and inspiring the educators who are privileged to have regular contact with our young people.

We invite those who are working in and with education to come to this day and be refreshed by people who understand the challenge. Relax, laugh, be inspired by talks, envisioned and most importantly, refilled by the power of the Holy Spirit.
