Fr. Raniero speaks at 'Focus'

Thousands gathered for 'Focus', Holy Trinity Brompton's church holiday at Golden Sands on the Lincolnshire coast. 

Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, preacher to the Papal household, was invited to speak at the week-long event, after which he received a lengthy standing ovation.  He spoke on the subject of the Father’s love, Holiness and Pentecost, reminding everyone that when he had last spoken at HTB’s Focus holiday several years ago he had spoken on Mary, the mother of Jesus.

Other speakers at the event included the Bishop of London, Richard Chartres and Hillsong founders Brian and Bobbie Houston.

This year’s event, was hosted by HTB Vicar Nicky Gumbel and his wife Pippa, was the 21st (the first took place in 1992) and the biggest ever attendance.
