Pentecost Celebration

The Diocesan Office of Evangelization presented a Pentecost celebration at Light of Christ Retreat Center on St. Croix on June 10–12. The theme was: “Do not conform yourself to this age, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect” (Rom 12:2).
The events began with an all-night prayer vigil on June 10. Winston Garcia from the People of Praise community in Trinidad spoke at a men’s prayer breakfast on June 11. Mr. Garcia also spoke at a men’s prayer breakfast at Light of Christ retreat Center on St. Croix on June 11, pictured right. He spoke to 37 men about their commitment to a life long covenant with their spouse.
About 200 participants from various parishes attended the annual Pentecost Rally at Light of Christ Retreat Center on St. Croix on Pentecost Sunday, June 12. Mr. Garcia encouraged the participants to allow the Holy Spirit to bring to fulfillment all that God has in store for them. He stressed a personal relationship with the Source and Giver of Life.
