A Catholic layman who is on the National team supporting renewal in the Holy Spirit will be the keynote speaker at a free mini-retreat to show how relying on the power of the Holy Spirit is vital in enabling us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

The meeting is hosted by “ADoRE”, one of the longest-running charismatic days of renewal in the country, and includes Mass, adoration, praise and worship, inspired teaching and prayer for all participants to receive the anointing and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Guest speaker on 25th November is Russ Fairman, member of the CHARIS National Service of Communion,former leader of Celebrate Southampton, and founder member of Healing on the Street Southampton. 

Russ’s talk is entitled “Streams of Living Water,” taken from John 7:37-39 

On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive. 

“Many Catholics in our parishes today are frightened by the idea of evangelising,” a spokesman for the organiser said, “but that is because they focus on their own feelings and inadequacies instead of relying on the Holy Spirit. Jesus calls on us to be channels of His blessing, and He gives us the Holy Spirit to inspire and equip us for the task of sharing His Good News.” 

The Mini-retreat is on 25th November 10.00am – 1.00pm on Zoom. Full details and advance registration  at
