A new program beginning next month hopes to awaken participants to the presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
Called “Awakening: How is the Holy Spirit at Work in Your Life?” the program seeks to help participants deepen their faith lives, rediscover God’s unconditional love for them, develop a richer and more meaningful prayer life and enrich their understanding of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and how those gifts are active in their daily lives.
Offered in a mission format over four nights, the program will begin Tuesday and Thursday evening October 18, 20, 25, and 27 from 7-8:30 p.m.. It will be held at Sacred Heart Church Norwichtown. Then the program will repeat again for for two weeks, November 29th, December 1st, 6th, and 8th, 7:00- 8:30 pm, at St. Pius X parish, Middletown.
Additional programs will be offered throughout the diocese next year.
Awakenings is open to people of all ages and stages of life. It will include a series of presentations as well as personal faith and Scripture sharing. An offshoot of each program will be the formation of prayer groups in each of the diocese’s seven deaneries.
The program is free, but registration is required. Those interested in registering for the October program can contact Marianne Nicholas at the Office of Faith Events, 860-848-2237, ext. 304, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
