Ministry’s “I Thirst” Initiative to Kick Off Nov. 19

Jul 26, 2022

 Spirit Filled Hearts Ministry's newest initiative, JESUS THIRSTS FOR AMERICAa 21-city U.S. revival, is set to kick off November 19 at Christ Cathedral in Garden Grove.  The inaugural event is themed I THIRST ORANGE COUNTY and will lead the national movement that calls people everywhere to a metanoia experience and a renewal in Jesus Christ and the sacraments of the Catholic Church.

“We asked the Holy Spirit, ‘what do you want us to do next?’” said Deacon Steve Greco, president and founder of Spirit Filled Hearts Ministry. “During the St. Joseph Summit, God was revealing how hungry people are for the Holy Spirit of God. We heard God in our hearts encouraging us to bring the fire of the Holy Spirit in person to call people to a metanoia and an invitation to conversion as well as to provide tools on how to express their faith and have a reason to believe.”

The JESUS THIRSTS FOR AMERICA movement is deeply sacramental and will have a powerful call to action inviting attendees to publicly commit, or re-commit, to Jesus Christ. The movement comes alongside the U.S. bishops’ initiative for Eucharistic revival and provides a way for the local church to embrace a custom-made, old-fashioned revival that will provide a means for people to encounter Jesus Christ. Local events will include:

  • Gatherings with powerful evangelists and the local Church and the opportunity to experience the power of the Eucharist and Mass. 
  •     Opportunities for repentance and Confession
  • Tools to better pass on the faith as an evangelist in these challenging times

I THIRST ORANGE COUNTY is the first city in the JESUS THIRSTS FOR AMERICA revival tour. The day-long experience will include Mass, all-day Confessions, live worship, evangelization through witness, and a call to commit. I THIRST ORANGE COUNTY speakers include Bishop Timothy Freyer, auxiliary bishop for the Diocese of Orange; Deacon Steve; Father Robert Spitzer, SJ, president of the Magis Center; Barbara Heil, founder of From His Heart Ministries; Deacon Larry Oney, founder of Hope and Purpose Ministries; and more. 

JESUS THIRSTS FOR AMERICA will take place in cities across the United States and plans are underway for other locations in California and Alabama and everywhere in between. As cities are added they will be announced here. Spirit Filled Hearts Ministry is developing a 12-month follow up in order to continue to provide attendees ongoing community, catechesis and tools to frequent the sacraments and become better witnesses of the teaching of the Catholic Church.
