On September 1-4, 2016, fourteen of us journeyed to the largest Catholic Charismatic gathering in the U.S. Themed, “Merciful & Gracious Is The LORD‘, the Southern California Renewal Communities Annual Charismatic Convention at the Anaheim Convention Center has drawn 10,000+ Catholic Charismatics for the past several years. The 3-day Convention provided a choice of 48 talks delivered by 34 speakers. Programs included: Regular Talks, Christ Triumphant (Spiritual Warfare) Track, Teen Conference, Children’s Program, Spanish Language Track, Mega Healing Service, and Young Adult activities. Many ran concurrently and offered a wide variety for different ages and interests. For Regular and Special Track ticket holders, registrants attended a talk during each of 10 sessions spread out over Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Each of the 24 talks had a speaker (sometimes two) as well as a music ministry. Attendance at the popular talks were 3-4 times the size of our Annual Charismatic Conference.
