Charismatics gather in Santa Clara

"Jesus Christ is Lord" is the theme of the Northern California Renewal Coalition's 26th annual Catholic Charismatic convention on May 24-27 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

About 2,500 people attended last year's event. The convention is designed to help foster the growth of individual's love for Jesus, and deepen one's own personal and intimate relationship with Him, by the power from the Holy Spirit and for the glory of God, the Father.

The convention also helps many Northern California Catholic charismatic prayer groups grow into spiritual maturity. This year's theme encourages all to fall on their knees, and "openly proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father," organizers say.

Most Rev. George Niederauer, archbishop emeritus of San Francisco, will preside at the opening Mass. Daily Mass and dynamic speakers will minister to young and old in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. A food court, books and religious articles will be available.

The event, which is open to all, is sponsored by seven Northern California dioceses: Monterey, San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, Sacramento, Stockton and Santa Rosa. For more information or to register, visit the website www.ncrcspirit.org or dial 925-828-6644, English; 650-834-0108, Spanish; and 408-661-6751, Vietnamese.
