Anne Marie

I am married with 2 adult children and have been involved with the CCR for 18 years. For the past 7 years I have served on the  NSW State Service Team coordinating Life in the Spirit Seminars and other events, and liaise with the local prayer groups. I have just completed a 4 year term on the ISAO committee coordinating Intercession and am continuing to serve in Intercession for thisregion with the new coordinator. Currently, I am Vice Chairperson for the National Service Committee for Australia. One of my roles in this position is to coordinate Intercession for the Renewal in Australia.

My heart is to bring people into the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, to Baptism in the Spirit and to walking in the fullness of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. I see my role is to evangelise in the love of Jesus while equipping others to do the same.




I live in Newcastle, am a widower with 8 children and 18 grandchildren and have been in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal there for 30 years. I am also engaged with the Saint Vincent de Paul Society, with the Parish and Diocesan activities.

I have a passion deposited from above for young people: I have been involved in various kinds of youth ministries for many, many years and I am currently a manager in the youth work field working for the young people of South West Sydney.

I pray constantly not for faith in God, rather to have the faith of God! I enjoy the  ministry of service with CCR.
