The main goal of this Consultation is to give participants the opportunity to reflect and share about the present situation in the Charismatic Renewal worldwide, by sharing from their own experiences in their regions and/or countries and then to discern together where the Spirit is leading the Charismatic Renewal for the future. Special questions on these matters will be prepared for the participants as basic guideline for discussion. Special sessions are planned for key leaders. Charles Whitehead, Allan Panozza and Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa will be the main speakers.

2. Spiritual Retreat for Charismatic Leaders
