YEAR OF MERCY 2016 AT ST. JOANS

Last year we held a series of tallks on mercy, and had a number of healing services, as an opportunity for  experiencing God's mercy. Many people have reported easing of various conditions and a noticeable increase in peace, joy and faith.

Regular healing services continue in 2017.
GOLDEN JUBILEE OF CATHOLIC CHARISMATIC RENEWAL

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Catholic Charismatic Renewal. At a gathering in Rome in June, Pope Francis spoke to 50,000 people celebrating the Jubilee, referring to charismatic renewal as a "current of grace for the whole Church, not just for some."

He urged: "Share with everyone in the Church the Baptism in the Holy Spirit; praise the Lord without ceasing; walk together with Christians of different churches, in prayer and action for the most needy."
