Changing the Atmosphere

God is in love with everyone of us and has a great plan to change our lives and the lives of others through us. The Holy Spirit is on the move, and He is already changing the atmosphere in Doylestown by empowering new disciples with His supernatural love. He is changing the atmosphere through the echoing praise and worship that flows from the Beacon Hill, where Blessed Virgin Mary reigns in the image of Our Lady of Czestochowa. It is time to change the atmosphere anew and share His love around our neighborhoods and throughout the greater Philadelphia area! We invite you to join us on this mission. Bride of the Holy Spirit, pray for us! Register for the Encounter School of Ministry!
