Pentecost retreat. Warsaw-Poland. June 2-9. 2019
Fr.James preached the Pentecost retreat this year  at the hall ' Global Expo' at Warsaw Poland from 7th to 9th June. Before starting the retreat He went with his team to the Arch Bishop of the diocese Rt. Rev. Dr. Romuald  Kaminski to obtain his apostolic blessings. As the Archbishop knew that Fr. James is disabled and is on wheel chair, he came   down to the car; standing beside the car talked with him very friendly and encouragingly for about 25 minutes& blessed him and the team. It was a grace-filled event! The theme of the retreat was, "Be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit" ( Act 1:8)  He gave powerful talks with many  personal testimonies about the need of a pentecostal experience in the life of every christian and prepared the hearts of above 2000 people,  who attended daily for three days with great enthusiasm and thirst, for an anointing of the Holy Spirit. From the beginning there was an atmosphere of prayer and grace in the hall and all those who entered the hall experienced great peace and joy of the Holy Spirit always. On the first  Friday and the following Saturday many people experienced great healing and liberation in the prayers of healing before the Blessed Sacrament and they testified them in public. On the day of Pentecost, Sunday, Fr. James prayed over all the participants by laying hands for an experience of Pentecost. Teams under  Wiola, Kasimir and Asia from Gdansk helped Fr. James and Gaby. It is Rev. Fr. Marek Serafin who took the interest in organising the retreat and he guided the team of organisers and volunteers.  A couple named Barthlomiej Wesolowski (Bartek) and Anna Daczkowska (Ania) were the chief organisers of the retreat. It is for 10th time that they organised the retreat of Fr. James in Warsaw!
On Pentecost Sunday Fr. Marek presided over the mass and Rev. Dr. Abraham Vettuvelil. MSFS, the superior general of the congregation of the Missionaries of St.Francis de Sales gave an inspiring homily. He said that the theme of Pentecost is 'change' by the Holy Spirit- Holy Spirit changed the apostles & 120 people gathered in the cenacle and 3000 people were changed their lives by listening to the spirit-filled talk of St. Peter and by receiving the Baptism. Fr. Abraham came from Rome mainly to express his love, solidarity and encouragement to the preaching ministry of Fr. James who belongs to his congregation!All the talks and prayers were translated by Mrs Anna Lason Zygadlewicz. There were many beautiful testimonies of healing, liberation & new life shared by many participants on the last day.  Here are some photos & videos:
