Ron Riggins elected to Catholic Charismatic Renewal leadership role

Ron Riggins, a parishioner of Church of the Nativity in Burke, was elected to a three-year term on the National Service Committee of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal. The election took place last month at the committee's meeting in Jacksonville, Fla.

A convert to Catholicism, Riggins is a core team leader for the Arlington Diocese's Unbound Prayer Ministry. He also is a board member and treasurer for Caritas in Veritate International, a charitable missionary organization.

The National Service Committee is a body of 11 leaders in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal who work to renew the grace of Pentecost in the life and mission of the church. Committee members are elected from among Catholic Charismatic Renewal leaders and are chosen for their "pastoral and visionary" gifts.
