BANGOR, Maine –¬† Organizers of the 16th annual Maine State Charismatic Conference have announced the conference has been moved to St Mary‚Äôs Church, 768 Ohio St. An unforeseen scheduling conflict prompted officials to relocate the event.
‚ÄúGood News for a New Generation‚ÄĚ is the conference theme, which is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 15. More than 200 people from around the state are expected to gather to hear the Rev. George T. Montague, SM, a Marianist priest and internationally known author, speaker, and former president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America.
He will present three talks aimed at helping people of all ages focus on the Holy Spirit and the gifts the spirit bestows on followers. Montague will discuss: ‚ÄúThe Holy Spirit is Power,‚ÄĚ The Power of Praise and Prophecy‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúThe Power to Heal and Serve.‚ÄĚ The day will conclude with prayer for the release of the Holy Spirit, a healing service led by the Rev. Richard P. Rice, liaison for the Charismatic Renewal in the Diocese of Portland, and Mass.
The Portland Diocesan Catholic Charismatic Renewal Service Committee organizes the annual conference, which brings together members of Maine‚Äôs Charismatic prayer communities to celebrate and grow in the Holy Spirit.
