See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up;
do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons & daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
your young men will see visions.
...for we know how dearly God loves us,
because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill
our hearts with his love.
The Auckland Catholic Charismatic Prayer Group Network (ACCPGN) is an Apostolate of the Catholic Diocese of Auckland and operates under the authority and patronage of the Bishop of Auckland.
Fr Rory Morrissey is the Liaison Priest to the Bishop of Auckland. The Service Group (commissioned body of the ACCPGN), meets monthly to discern how we can support the mission of ACCPGN.
To see the restoration of all of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as a normal part of Catholic Church life, and lead people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and develop the fullness of the Holy Spirit in the lives of all believers.
ACCPGN seeks to serve the Catholic Church by being one of the agents and instruments of the Holy Spirit working for the ongoing renewal and growth of the Church today.
We seek to participate with the Holy Spirit in the renewal of the Church by:
- Working to lead all people to a close, personal and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ, Lord of all aspects of their lives.
- Fostering the Baptism (or Release) of the Holy Spirit, received in the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, as a means of deepening the work of the Holy Spirit in the Catholic Church and in the lives of individuals.
- Encouraging reading, studying and living the sacred scriptures.
- Encouraging the use of the Charismatic Gifts as an accepted and regular part of life in the Catholic Church.
- Encouraging people to participate fully in the life of their Parish
