The Philadelphia Charismatic Renewal Conference 2018 on Saturday, Oct. 20 will seek to help attendees remove obstacles to God’s grace and healing, allowing for a deeper encounter with the Lord’s love.

Entitled “Open the Eyes of My Heart, Lord” (a reference to Ephesians 1:18), the gathering will focus on clearing the roadblocks of discouragement, rejection, isolation and pain, and creating space in which to experience the complete and all-consuming love of Jesus.

The conference will feature speakers, praise and worship, personal prayer teams, eucharistic adoration and benediction, as well as the divine liturgy and a special “Healing of the Heart” service.

Bishop Edward Deliman will celebrate the Vigil Mass.
