Hundreds of people with the Catholic Charismatic Renewal worshiped during Mass celebrated by Archbishop Charles Chaput on Saturday, March 28 at Conwell-Egan High School in Fairless Hills, Bucks County. It capped the 35th annual day-long conference for all the Catholic charismatics in the Philadelphia Archdiocese, and the theme was “Unity and Diversity in the Body of Christ.” The conference also welcomed many teenagers for a Youth Track with activities, talks and prayer.
