In 2013, the World Youth Meeting of the CCR was held. Its headquarters were in Brazil where we had the opportunity to talk with our sister. Michelle Moran president of ICCRS, where we exposed our concrete reality and the desire to live the formation that ICCRS imparts to all the members of the Charismatic Renewal that is why in Peru we started the negotiations for this great event.
We saw as a priority the training offered by the ICCRS Leaders School and everything was organized for the days of August 20 to August 9 in the Retreat House Villa Carmelitas - Lurín where we had the joy of being able to share with the brother speakers Michelle Moran president of ICCRS, Jim Murphy Director of the Schools of Formation of ICCRS and Andres Arango Coordinator of the National Committee of the Hispanic Catholic Charismatic Renewal and member of the CONCCLAT. We were 79 participating brothers and 7 that were as a service team.
The topics were the following:
2. Baptism in the Holy Spirit
3. Charismatic Spirituality
4. Theology of the mission
5. Elements of a prayer group
7. The life of a leader.
Each one of the themes lasted for 1 hour followed by strong moments of prayer, coming to experience the presence of the Holy Spirit who took us and stirred our interior, coming to live his transformation and consolation. Each testimony was very shocking that not only broke our vision of a charismatic leader but also infected the fervent desire to live that new Pentecost.
Those of us who were there were impressed with each dynamic of prayer and adoration, I would like to highlight the moment when they prayed for each one asking for a Baptism in the Holy Spirit, and the experience of praying before the Cross.
Our brothers were very happy for the close relationship with the members of the ICCRS who, even with the difference of the language, knew how to overcome this obstacle and interlaced hugs, receiving from them the attention of a pastor.
We are very grateful to our powerful God who allowed us to have this formation with our brothers of the ICCRS and from now we intercede for you so that God continues guiding them and that the Holy Spirit continues to move throughout the CCR of the World.

“Take strength from the grace which is in Christ Jesus. Pass on to reliable people what you have heard from me through many witnesses, so that they in turn will be able to teach others.”
2 Tim 2:1-2
The ICCRS Leadership Training Course is for people of all ages, from charismatic organisations worldwide who want to spend some time of their lives being formed in leadership within the CCR.
In partnership with local Charismatic realities, ICCRS provides this week–long programme that will call and empower new leaders as well as strengthen and encourage current ones.
The programme includes daily Mass, Eucharist Adoration and a time of Charismatic Praise and Worship. The teachings cover: the foundations and vision of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal (Ecclesiology, Baptism in the Holy Spirit, the Histoy of the CCR, a Theology of Mission); and practical help and ideas for ministry (elements of a prayer meeting, basic techniques for evangelisation, the life of leaders). There is also time for reflection, sharing and ministry.
People of all ages from the host country or nearby are invited to participate!
The course will be held primarily in Spanish.
