Catholic Charismatic Renewal Center for Chicago
The purpose of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Center for Chicago (CCRCC) is to serve God by promoting the Charismatic Renewal in the Catholic Church within the Chicagoland area.
We envision carrying out our servanthood by:
- Proclaiming Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, in both our words and in our actions;
- Fostering a growing personal relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
- Being baptized in the Holy Spirit and by bringing others to this experience;
- Continuing to experience Pentecost and by using the gifts and charisms of the Holy Spirit for the building up of Christ’s body;
- Opening ourselves to growth in the Spirit through prayer and praise, instruction of scripture, and teaching – both in prayer groups and in private prayer;
- Personally yielding to the Spirit’s call to share in the ministry of Jesus;
- Working toward unity among Christians and by personally living out that unity;
- Being obedient to the teaching authority of the Catholic Church, especially as represented by the Catholic Archbishop of Chicago.
The CCRCC Service Team’s mission is to implement the above vision by:
- Creating and providing supportive charismatic programs;
- Maintaining a consultative relationship with those involved in the Charismatic Renewal at the local, national and international levels;
- Operating a center to carry out our goals;
- Maintaining open communication with the Catholic Archbishop of Chicago through the liaison;
- Cooperating with archdiocesan organizations and offices;
- Seeking ways to finance this mission.
