St. Joseph Healing Ministry Retreat 44th Annual Healing Retreat Fort Worden Conference Center Port Townsend, WA March 12, 13, 14, 2021
Theme to be announced (Speaker for 2020 was Father John Campoli, His Love Ministries)
Father John Campoli, I.V.Dei - the Voluntas Dei Institute seeks to group together Christians who specialize in listening for God's will and in carrying it out. It is a secular institute of pontifical right in the Catholic Church. Consecration: The members are called to give themselves totally to God, for His honour and service, in a given institute erected by the Church. Apostolate: The members are called to work in the temporal order and in this way witness to Christ. Working with the power of love in the world and from within the world, they share in the evangelization task of the Church. Secularity: All of God's people are called to dedicate themselves to Him, wherever they are. They do not need to live in community as the religious do. They are in communion with the Church and live in fellowship with their brothers and sisters, as it is their style of secular consecration. Father Campoli was ordained in 1970 for the Diocese of Trenton, New Jersey. He holds a Master's degree in Theology from St. Mary's Seminary, Emmitsburg, Maryland and has pursued post-graduate studies in Liturgy at Catholic University. In 1991, Father felt a call to a more consecrated life and with the bishop's permission left the diocese to join Voluntas Dei. For over thirty years Father Campoli has been involved in both Renewal and the Healing Ministry. He is the author of several books and has appeared both on television and radio. Several of his talks can be found on Youtube.
