Jesus, the Light that Overcomes the Darkness

Johnnette Benkovic will speak about the light of Christ with its power to overcome the darkness of our world and culture. Even as we are surrounded by the darkness of sin and death, we look to Jesus as our firm hope. He brings the light of truth into our lives, families, neighborhoods and finally to a world weary with its burden of deceit, lies, and half-truths.

Come and hear Johnnette as she probes the Scriptures in order to impart the life-giving message of Jesus to all who will listen. In the power of the Holy Spirit, Johnnette brings her own special gifts of enthusiasm and spiritual insight to the Lord's Word and His wish to heal and empower us.

The Rosary: Walking with Mary in the Mysteries of Christ

Father Wade Menezes, C.P.M. brings his compelling and Spirit-filled style of teaching to the Institute as he speaks about Pope John Paul II's document, Rosarium Virginis Mariae. This beautiful document will be brought to life by Father Wade as he explores its awe-inspiring focus on Christ and especially the new luminous mysteries (Mysteries of Light).

The simple, but profound prayer of the Rosary has at its depths the Gospel message. The Holy Father speaks of gazing on the face of Christ in praying the Rosary and allowing it to "shed light on the mystery of man." Join us as we rediscover this treasure and respond to the challenge it offers to imitate Christ.

Youth Day: Walking in the Power of the Spirit

Jim "Butch" Murphy is a man of prayer and vision that has focused his many gifts in dedication of his life to Christ. He is writing the story of his extraordinary 4,200-mile walk across America carrying a six foot cross. His wife says she intends to hold her energetic husband to his computer keyboard until he finishes telling how he wore out 14 pairs of shoes and himself on an 18-month long journey of prayer and evangelization from St. Augustine, Florida to Sonoma, California.

Jim is a big man with a big heart and his message to young people is as unique as he is! Come to catch the excitement of the good news and to hear his challenge to discipleship.

This one-day program for young people, aged 12 through 19, will include straight talk, music, fellowship and time to share. It will take place Saturday, August 2 from 9:00 AM through 5:00 PM.

FOUR-DAY SEMINARS (Mon — Thurs)

The Catechism of the Catholic Church
The Holy Spirit has given the Church in our time a wonderful tool. Are you familiar with it and its importance to our Catholic faith? You can register for the entire four days or for any day or days that you select. Timothy describes the Church as "the pillar and bulwark of truth" (1 Tm 3:15). This seminar will be offered as follows:

Mon Jul 28 Section 1: The Profession of Faith
Tues Jul 29 Section 2: The Celebration of the Christian Mystery
Wed Jul 30 Section 3: Life in Christ
Thur Jul 31 Section 4: Christian Prayer

Discipleship: Building the Foundation
What are the basic building blocks in answering Jesus' call to discipleship? This four-day seminar will equip you to begin the journey through teaching, witnessing, and encouragement. Learn to use the gifts God has given you to build a dynamic life in the Holy Spirit. One of the days of this program, Thursday, will be given by Father Rob Jack on Mary as the model disciple. "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations" (Mt 28:19). This seminar requires four days — Mon, Jul 28 through Thurs, Jul 31.

How to Teach the Bible in the Power of the Holy Spirit
Learn how the Holy Spirit can work through your Bible teachings to lead others to Christ and to help them grow in faith. "Faith, then, comes through hearing, and what is heard is the word of Christ" (Rm 10:17). This seminar requires four days — Mon, Jul 28 through Thurs, Jul 31.

THREE-DAY SEMINAR (Mon — Wed)

The Gift of Healing
We ourselves, our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, and parishes are in need of healing and freedom in Jesus. Is the Holy Spirit calling you to minister His healing to those who are ill, hurt, and brokenhearted? "The sick upon whom they lay their hands will recover" (Mk 16:18). This seminar requires three days— Mon, Jul 28, Tues, Jul 29, and Wed, Jul 30.

TWO-DAY SEMINARS (Mon Tues or Mon Thurs)

The Holy Spirit, Prophesy and Renewal
This new seminar on prophecy focuses on Scriptural models to bring about renewal in ourselves, our families, and our parishes. Come and receive the fire of the Holy Spirit! "1 have come to set the earth on fire, and how 1 wish it were already blazing!" (Lk 12:49) This seminar requires two days — Mon, Jul 28 and Tues, Jul 29.

Life in the Spirit Seminar
Is God calling you to a new depth in your relationship with Christ in the power of the Spirit? Are you searching for something more? Do you have a thirst that has not been satisfied? Come and receive all God wants to give you, "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes down on you..."(Acts 1:8) This seminar requires two days — Mon, Jul 28 and Tues, Jul 29.

Small Christian Communities to Change the World
Before He left the earth, Jesus initiated His plan of spreading the Gospel by using the home as the basis for evangelization. Learn how to dedicate your home to the Lord's service in building the kingdom. "They devoted themselves to the apostles' instruction and the communal life, to the breaking of bread and the prayers" (Acts 2:42). This seminar requires two days — Mon, Jul 28 and Tues, Jul 29.

Biblical Leadership: A Gift for Today
The Holy Spirit in the Scripture provides instruction for growth in holiness and discipleship as well as many models of Biblical leadership. Many ministries are floundering because leaders do not answer God's call to serve in the kingdom. "You have known the sacred Scriptures, the source of the wisdom which through faith in Jesus Christ leads to salvation" (2 Tm 3:15). This seminar requires two days — Wed, Jul 30 and Thurs, Jul 31.

Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts
Do you know your spiritual gifts? Have you wondered how the Lord wants you to use them? The Scripture identifies at least thirty gifts or charisms available to us in the power of the Holy Spirit. This program will give you the knowledge and practical tools to identify your own gifts and those of others. "Set your hearts on spiritual gifts" (1 Cor 14:1). This seminar requires two days — Wed, Jul 30 and Thurs, Jul 31.

Everyday Evangelization
This exciting new seminar will provide both the inspiration and the practical tools needed to reach out and share Christ and His message to those around you. Come to learn the dynamics of building a structure that will allow the Holy Spirit to bring about the civilization of love. "The paraclete, the Holy Spirit ... will instruct you in everything" (Jn 14:26). This seminar requires two days — Wed, Jul 30 and Thurs, Jul 31

ONE-DAY SEMINARS

Starting and Growing in Home-Schooling
Is home-schooling a feasible option for you and your family? Do you have the knowledge and the gifts to teach your children? God has created parents to be the primary educators of their children and so He has given them the gifts to succeed in this calling . Come and hear other parents who are teaching their children from birth through high school. "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it" (Prv 22:6). This seminar requires one day — Thurs, Jul 31.

Discernment in a Culture of Death
Surrounded by Satan's lies, how can we distinguish between the things of God and the deceit of the evil spirit? The gift of discernment is greatly needed in our time. This seminar will equip you to tell whether something is of the Holy Spirit, the evil spirit, or the human spirit. "When He comes, however, being the Spirit of truth, He will guide you to all truth" (Jn 16:13). This seminar requires one day — Fri, Aug 1.

Family Life in Christ
Would you like to spend time with your children in an environment of encouragement and sharing? This day is designed for parents, children (ages 6 & up), and teens. The day begins at 10:15 AM at the Holy Spirit Center and will offer several sessions including a break for lunch. It will be a time to come together with family members. Activities are planned for the day that will be appropriate for inter-generational prayer and sharing (including families, members of home-based communities, etc.).

The afternoon will include breakout sessions for teens that will be planned by a team of dedicated young people who are living the Gospel message. "As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord" (Jos 24:15). This seminar is offered on Fri, Aug 1.

Getting to Know the Guadalupe Bible College
"Live according to what you have learned and accepted..."(Phil 4:9) This program is for those interested in learning more about being either a student or teacher (home study or classroom) for Guadalupe Bible College. This seminar requires one day — Fri, Aug 1.

The Gift of Intercession
Pope John Paul II has said that "prayer and fasting are the first and most effective weapons against the forces of evil" (Gospel of Life, 100). Learn how to be a prayer warrior in the army of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. "The fervent prayer of a holy person is powerful indeed" (Jas 5:16). This seminar requires one day — Fri, Aug 1.

How to be a Holy Defender of the Faith
Come and learn how to defend some of the basic beliefs of our faith. This one-day foundational seminar takes a look at the truths of our Catholic faith that are often misunderstood. "Should anyone ask you the reason for this hope of yours, be ever ready to reply" (1 Pt 3:15). This seminar requires one day — Fri, Aug 1.

Rebuild the House of the Lord
The Lord wants us to rebuild His house, His bride, His Church. This one-day seminar is designed to enable you to focus on Jesus as you serve in your parish. As Catholics we have rich resources to call upon as well as the powerful action of the Holy Spirit through the sacraments and the liturgy. "How deep are the riches and the wisdom and the knowledge of God!" (Rm 11:33). This seminar requires one day — Fri, Aug 1.

Who am I in Christ?
God calls each of us to serve Him throughout the many seasons of our life. There may be a time when we are called to be single for the Lord, married, parenting, or widowed. We might also be called to a vocation at work or to serve the Lord in a new way when we retire. By understanding the various callings, we can identify God's plan for ourselves and those around us. We must pray "... the life I live now is not my own; Christ is living in me" (Gal 2:20). This seminar requires one day — Fri, Aug 1.
