Evangelist to speak in Culpeper

Aneel Aranha, a well-regarded Catholic evangelist from Dubai, will conduct a full-day "Growth Retreat" April 14 at Tuscany Hall, 21125 Kettle Club Rd., Culpeper, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The retreat is intended to help Catholics grow in prayer, faith and their relationships.

Aranha is the founder of Holy Spirit Interactive, a Catholic lay apostolate dedicated to strengthening the faith of Christians and spreading the word of God around the world.

He has written several books, including The School of the Holy Spirit, The Armor of God and The Seven Deadly Sins. Aranha has spoken at hundreds of parishes around the world, including the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada.

Last year, he hosted a discipleship program at Precious Blood Church in Culpeper, which Father Leo Zonneveld, pastor, said was "a wonderful experience that deeply touched the lives of all who attended in their relationship with God."

"Mr. Arranha's personal life story and the power of Jesus and the Gospel, so evident in his life, were an inspiration and an invitation to a deeper commitment to our faith and a desire to share that faith with others," Father Zonneveld said.

Pizza and soft drinks will be provided. Retreatants are asked to give a goodwill offering.
