Our mission as a faith-based charitable organization is to help bring health,encouragement, and hope to the people of Far West Texas, especially
   the desperately poor in this depressed area,          promoting healing and growth in body,              mind and spirit to individuals, families,           and the whole community regardless of
 race,                  religion, or state in life.                                        WE BELIEVE                        We are called by the Lord Jesus to love and serve His Church through prayer, evangelization, encouraging growth in the Spirit, and doing corporal and spiritual works of mercy, empowered by the gifts and graces of Pentecost for the glory of God the Father.

We are spiritually submitted to the authority of
the Bishop of El Paso.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts
of your faithful, enkindle in
them the fire of your
love and renew
the face of 
the earth!

Marian Celebration, Walls of Jericho: 7 Days Of Prayer for the Holy Spirit Center

The theme of a recent Conference
repeated the words of Jesus
spoken many times in Scripture    and echoed through the ages.
Our Bishop wrote a letter of greeting to Conference participants.
We share his words with you here.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Spirit,

“Be not afraid!”  What wonderful, transforming words from the mouth of the Lord!  These are words that were a regular refrain through the life and ministry of St. John Paul II.  They are words that made it possible for him to stare down the power of his communist oppressors and any other force opposed to the Faith.

In our day we have another successor in the See of Peter, Pope Francis, for whom those words are a way of life.  He enters war zones and places of violence without hesitation and he wades into some of the most challenging issues of our day inviting dialogue with utter confidence that the Spirit will win out.

How different would our lives be if we also could free our lives from fear.  In great and small ways fear inhibits us from making the bold choices that would allow us to reach our full potential and to fulfill God’s plan for us in the world.  Free from fear, Mary said to the Angel, “Be it done to me according to your word.”  Free from fear (at least for a moment) Peter walked on water.  Matthew arose and left his tax collector table.  Paul proclaimed his faith before the Roman Tribunal.  Through the centuries, freedom from fear has been the identifying mark of innumerable martyrs and saints.

        And so I repeat the words of Jesus,          “BE NOT AFRAID!” 
“Take courage; get up,
He is calling you.” (MK 10:49)

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Rev. Mark J. Seitz, D.D.
Bishop of El Paso

This is a one day program
of prayer, songs of praise,
testimonies and teachings,
discussions, and a chance
to be prayed with for a new
experience of the Holy Spirit
known as the
"baptism in the Holy Spirit".
This is not a sacrament, but
the actualization of graces
and gifts already bestowed
by the Holy Spirit in
Baptism and Confirmation.
No matter where you may be
in your spiritual journey,
there is always more!
       Open Arms teams are available        to present
Life in the Spirit Retreats for any group: our place or yours. You are invited to schedule a time of renewal                  and refreshment in the                  Power of the Holy Spirit.
