Charismatic leaders from Asia-Oceania meet in Singapore
The meeting was facilitated by ICCRS president Michelle Moran and vice-president Cyril John.
It re-looked at existing structures of ISAO to see if it was sufficient to serve the vision of ICCRS, and noted that events like the international Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCR) conferences held in Jakarta, Indonesia and Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, together with other sub-regional conferences organised by ISAO over the last few years did help bring the countries closer to each other for mutual collaboration.
The meeting also led to the decision to put more emphasis for CCR on youth ministries and leadership formation at all levels. Emphasis on community building and one’s role in the parish were also discussed. All were reminded of their responsibility to help others live authentic Christian lives through personal prayer, intercessory prayer and living the word of God.
ISAO works in collaboration with all renewal realities and expressions to help offer Charismatic spirituality to the Church.
The next ISAO conference will be held in Qatar from Sept 23 to 26, 2015.

1. Colloquim on deliverance prayer in Rome from April 3 to 6, 2014
2. International CCR Conference in Kampala, Uganda, from June 30 to July 6, 2014
