About the topic

This presentation traces the development of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal from its beginnings in the international arena, specifically in the United States, as a movement which has its roots in the North American (Wesleyan) Methodist church in the late nineteenth century, to its emergence in Trinidad & Tobago in the 1970s. The history of the emergence of the international and local movements is traced highlighting the interconnections made between Protestants and Catholics; demonstrating the centrality of the role of women, and a distinctly female apostolate in the local movement; and identifying a number of socio-political factors which may have fertilised Trinidadian soil allowing the local movement to flourish.
