Charismatic Praise and Worship Prayer Group

A Charismatic Prayer Group. Meets in the St. Raphael’s Parish Conference Room Wednesdays at 6:30 pm. Contact Ray Lyra email: for any questions or inquiries. 

"St. Raphael's Charismatic Praise and Worship is studying the Power and Presence of the Holy Spirit both in the Old and New Testament."

At our weekly Wednesday night meetings, in additional to Praise & Worship, Testimonies, Prayer, and operating in the Gifts of the Spirit, we are also studying about the workings of the Holy Spirit in the Bible. We are currently reading in the book of the Acts of the Apostles. We are learning how important it was for Paul and the other Apostles to be able to hear the Holy Spirit directing their steps, encouraging them when they were suffering at the hands of their enemies, and anointing them through the Power of the Holy Spirit with the right words to preach and to heal. Please come join us! See the Flyer below for more details.
