Our Vision Statement:

We, the members of the Pastoral Board of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the Diocese of Columbus, Ohio, Commit ourselves and call the Catholic charismatic renewal movement to:

1. Serve God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit by serving the Catholic Church in its primary mission of evangelization through the power of the Holy Spirit.

2. Foster a personal experience of Pentecost through these basic elements of charismatic renewal:

  • committing oneself to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior,
  • being baptized in the Holy Spirit
  • receiving and using charismatic gifts,
  • developing a life of holiness in a Catholic context of faith and practice,
  • growing together as brothers and sisters in communities of faith and love,
  • witnessing to Jesus Christ through personal testimony and works of mercy and justice.

3. Strengthen the Catholic charismatic renewal movement through Life in the Spirit Seminars, networking, teaching, leadership training and encouragement, in cooperation with the diocesan liaison.

4. Promote awareness and understanding of the Catholic charismatic renewal movement.

5. Relate to and work with other Catholic organizations and movements serving the mission of the Church.

6. Relate to and work with members of the other Christian churches, denominations, bodies and ministries for unity in the body of Christ and world evangelization.

7. Raise the funds necessary to accomplish this mission.
