Catholic Renewal Conference - August 19th - 21st, 2016

The 2016 Conference was again a most blessed and spirit-filled event. Forty-five evaluation sheets were completed this year representing about two thirds of those who attended the Conference. A high number of ‘5’s were given once again, particularly for the speaker, Fr. Bill Keogh, the music, the prayer and praise and the prayer ministry. Many delegates had expressed much praise for the Conference as a whole, giving details of what they had gained from it personally. I know that it does not end there; that God will continue to bless the Delegates in many ways and that much fruit is still to come.

The team arrived on the Thursday afternoon. It proves very useful for us to be in place before everyone arrives on the following day. On the Friday morning, the team set about putting everything in place in the Cothi Conference Room, including the sound system and the alcove for the reservation of the Blessed Sacrament, as well as blessing the campus, the rooms and the Conference Room itself. Pastor Gareth Leyshon said Mass for the team in the kitchen at 2.30pm.

Registration started promptly at 1.30pm and ran very smoothly. Peter and Helen Kift and Sheila are to be thanked for their service all afternoon, at times with many people to register. There were sixty-two Delegates, together with nine Day Visitors on the Saturday. 

Fr. Bill introduced the Conference “If you only knew what God is offering!” on the Friday evening. He did this with a very light touch. Delegates were encouraged to reflect by themselves on what they were expecting from the Conference. During his talks on Saturday and Sunday, Fr. Bill held the delegates’ attention with his powerful delivery, his teaching, wisdom and spirituality, his recounting of his own experience of the Lord working in his life and in the lives of others and his spontaneous prayer and singing. At times, the silence in the room was palpable as the delegates hung on his every word.

Fr. Bill also led the Prayer Ministry evening in the Anglican Chapel and this was wonderfully uplifting and fruitful. Fr. Bill prayed over all the delegates who went up with the Blessed Sacrament and many were those who fell down, slain in the Spirit. Fr. Pius, who was hearing Confessions, clearly felt that something powerful was happening and went to join Fr. Bill. Prayer Ministry was then offered and this was once again co-ordinated by Sheila.

We were pleased to welcome Bishop Tom Burns to say Mass on the Sunday and are grateful for his support. It was very fitting since the Conference takes place in his Diocese and good for local delegates to see him there. It was so nice to see Fr. Ambrose at the CCRW Conference once again. We thank him for his generous contribution to the Conference. He attended all the events, again lending his recognised air of serenity and dignity at all times. He heard Confessions on the Prayer Ministry evening and gave the homily on the Saturday. We thank Pastor Gareth for his challenging homily to us at the Sunday Mass and for leading the commissioning liturgy on the Sunday afternoon. It was a real blessing to have a prayer partner and to take it in turns to pray for each other. We were really pleased to see Fr. Artur who attended on both days and led one of the Small Group discussions on the Saturday.

We were very blessed to have three Anglican Ministers with us, the Reverend Ainsley Griffiths, Chaplain at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, the Reverend Pat Phillips and the Reverend Michael Bennett. The Anglican Eucharist was a very special service, better attended this year.

The music was again a highlight of the weekend. Fr. Bill really praised the group of musicians and described the music as an anointing. The music and singing in the ten minutes before each timetabled event continued this year. It really does serve to gather the delegates, settle them and send out the message that the next item is about to start. Thanks must go to all the musicians and singers, Mike, Bob, Max, Jane and Philippa for their playing and singing and to Clare Walsh for her beautiful singing and harmonising. Dave too, must be thanked for his constant attention to the projection of the words. We thank Paul Williams hugely for his work on the sound system, ensuring that the microphones were working, adjusting the volume and recording the talks. These talks were beautifully presented on CDs, using the same image of the theme and the same font of the poster and programme. The quality of the recording was excellent.

The College staff members give very good attention to detail and to fulfilling all we require of them, including communication in the months leading up to the Conference. The catering staff are always helpful and charming.

There are a small number of aspects of the Conference that need to be given some consideration and the Conference Planning Team 2017 has already begun to do this. The organising of the Small Groups and the feedback is one such item.

My sincere personal thanks are to be given to the Planning Team members, Fran, Ceri, Pat and Sheila for all their efforts and hard work, their commitment to the Conference and their prayers. It continues to be both a privilege and an honour to lead the Planning Team and I thank the team members for their support to me throughout the last year. This year we were able to achieve one of our targets from last year, thanks to Ceri. She created a Facebook page for the Conference for which we thank her very much.

We thank almighty God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for the countless blessings showered on the Conference and still being received! To Him be continual praise and glory!

Recommendations for Future Conferences

There is a need to draw in more young people and young families; and to train young people to take over certain roles in the future

A concerted effort needs to be made to ensure that future Conferences are more ecumenical.

Words and Prophecies

The Walls of Jericho will fall down when we praise God. These walls are of darkness, oppression, sin.

+++++

The value of Prophetic Intercession.

+++++

Interpretation of Tongues:
Let My Name be honoured among you
Let My Name be always on your lips
Let My Name honour Me
Let My Name strengthen you
Let My Name be your sound foundation
My Name is “JESUS, SAVIOUR”

+++++

“I’ve put Precious Treasure in your hands. Look after it.”

+++++

A picture of a gas cylinder with a spout. The gas is the energy of the Holy Spirit which is poured out (through the spout) into people.
We need to have the desire to light the fire, and to help others to do this.

+++++

A picture of a person lying in a hammock, wrapped up like Lazarus (when he died ). People need to be raised from sleep and invite Jesus into their lives.
Some are sleeping, some are spiritually dead. They need help.

+++++

The Father’s Blessing for us. His heart is for us.
Peace and Blessings from the Conference, and the value of Ecumenism.

Other Reflections

The power of forgiveness Matt 18:21 Forgive 70x7 times.

+++++

The assurance of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

+++++

Sometimes we have to move on from things – the devil wants to hold us back.

+++++

Make a list of the people you need to forgive. Bring them to mind, tell them you forgive them from your heart, ask God to bless them and their family. Keep calm and just do it! Brings freedom.

+++++

The Name of Jesus spoken, coming out of the mouth, out of darkness is a Word of freedom, liberation

+++++

We’ve been called to the Conference to reflect, evangelise, bring the Good News, bringers of forgiveness, servants of the Lord. Called in to go out - nourish, renew, gather, send.

+++++

Keep our eye on the ball, on His treasure.

+++++

So many times – I am the Lord Your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt. Hymn – I’m not going back to Egypt (bondage).

"When Brother Sabu was praying over the crowd, I felt a kind of tingling going from the back of my neck up into the back of my head. 

Then a few minutes later, Brother Sabu picked me out of the crowd to come forward for healing. I told him I had lower back pain for almost a year and stomach pains too.

After he prayed for me, my back ache was gone and I could do stretching movements that I hadn't been able to do for a long while! Since then, my back has ached a little bit in the mornings when I get up, but then passes. My stomach pains come and go as before.

I feel that I have had a healing as my back has not felt this good for such a long time! Maybe our mattress is a bit too soft and is causing the problem in the mornings - we may try changing it"

 

"After listening to the Homily by Brother Sabu, followed by asking us to place our hand on any part of our body which we felt needed healing, I did just that.

For over 30 years I have had severe restriction of my neck due to arthritis. I prayed so hard as I was holding my neck. After a few minutes I felt a burning sensation and I began to move my neck from side to side. I knew at once I had been touched by Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit. Brother Sabu asked if there was anyone in the room with neck trouble and he looked straight at me. My hand went up and I was able to show how I could move my head from side to side.

I have indeed been truly blessed."
