The Service Team seeks to stir into flame the grace of Pentecost and to assist the various forms of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal.
We facilitate cooperation among leaders as their groups encourage people in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and lead them to the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Service Team seeks to maintain a bond of unity and collaboration with the Bishop of Scranton as we work together to fulfill the mission of the diocese.
