CHARIS Philippines National Charismatic Leaders Conference to Equip and Unite Catholic Charismatic Leaders in Cebu

The first-ever National Charismatic Leaders Conference, set to take place in IC3 Cebu City on July 27–28, 2024, is rapidly approaching.

The national leader's conference, which has the theme "You will be my witnesses," aims to "equip charismatic leaders to be in synodal mission, share updated teachings from CHARIS International, and organize leaders of CHARIS National Service of Communion."

Event organizers CHARIS Philippines and host community Couples for Christ expect 2,000 leaders, diocesan coordinators, and spiritual advisers of Catholic Charismatic communities all over the Philippines. 

Ms. Fe Barino, the CHARIS Philippines coordinator, and CHARIS Asia-Oceania team member, will give the introduction titled "Our Charismatic Synodality."

During the two-day national gathering, speakers include theologian Dr. Moses Catan, Mr. Shayne Bennet, CHARIS Asia-Oceania Coordinator International, Cyril John, CHARIS International Coordinator Commission on Intercession, and Raymond Daniel Cruz, CHARIS Asia-Oceania Team Member.

The spiritual director of CHARIS Philippines, Fr. Bartolome Pastor, will preside over the eucharistic celebration on the opening day, while Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma will celebrate mass at the end of the national conference.

According to Barino, the event will also serve as the kickoff for the CHARIS National Conference, which CHARIS Asia-Oceania will host in Cebu from October 4–6, 2024.

The organizer encourages interested parties to register by June 30, 2024, at the latest.
