The Catholic Charismatic Renewal
In February 1967, a group of college students attending a retreat at Duquesne University in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania had a powerful and transforming experience in response to fervent prayer asking God to allow them to experience the grace of both baptism and confirmation. The account of this experience - which came to be known as "baptism in the Spirit" - quickly spread across the college campus and then to other campuses across the United States. This was the beginning of the renewal.
