“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses…”
Acts of the Apostles 1:8
This worldwide renewal can trace its beginnings to a group of college students at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. . On a retreat at the Ark and the Dove Retreat House in 1967, they were praying for the Holy Spirit to touch them as he did the disciples in the upper room at Pentecost. And that is exactly what happened!! Their lives were changed forever, and so have the lives of millions of Catholics since.
