Join Us for Renewal Ministries' Annual Gathering:

The Light Shines in the Darkness

April 7-9, 2017

Eagle Crest Marriott Hotel & Conference Center · Ypsilanti, MI

This year's theme is The Light Shines in the Darkness (Jn 1:5)—a theme of confidence and hope! People in today’s world are concerned about instability, give in to discouragement, and are afraid of the dark—but Jesus Christ is the light of the world! Be not afraid! Our Lord has overcome the darkness. Our Lady—and 2017 is the one-hundredth anniversary of Fatima—is on mission. The Holy Spirit is on mission. Jesus Christ is on mission. He’s given us a light so we can be just that—on mission. As Catholics, we need to firmly grasp that truth, and this year’s Gathering is designed to help us do just that!

Join us for a weekend packed with Mass, praise and worship, fellowship, and powerful talks by Bishop Scott McCaig, Ralph Martin, Peter Herbeck, Sr. Ann Shields, and Dr. Mary Healy. Prayer for healing and empowerment will once again be led by Fr. Mathias Thelen.
