Father Bob Hogan, BBD will be the Guest Speaker for the seminar, Mary, the Pathway to Living in the Power of the Holy Spirit. Father Bob will open our minds and hearts to the fullness of God's plan in bringing Mary and the Holy Spirit into the very center of our faith life.
He along with Father George Montague are directors of the newly founded religious community, Brothers of the Beloved Disciple, in San Antonio Texas. The mission of their community is "with Mary, to bring the full role of the Holy Spirit into the heart of the Church."
The early Church was profoundly charismatic. The Holy Spirit bestowed the full power of His gifts upon the early disciples enlivening and strengthening their faith. Along with Mary, they then had the endurance to form strong evangelizing communities. Father Bob will place before us the challenge of living out this dual vision of being dedicated to Mary and fashioned by the Holy Spirit.
