 HOLY SPIRIT SEMINAR 2020

We have been watching, closely reports about the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the summer.  As of the end of August, the pandemic continues to take about 1000 American lives each day, and gathering in large groups continues to put people at risk of contracting the disease.  The State of Ohio discourages any mass gatherings and limits travel to Ohio from any state with a positivity rate of 15% or higher.  Furthermore, Montgomery County, in which the Seminary is located, is under public emergency level 3 (out of 4), making it among the highest risk counties in Ohio.

In order to protect the health of everyone concerned, we have made the difficult decision to offer this year's Holy Spirit Seminar (Dec. 4,2020) Livestream, as opposed to in person.  Dr. Peter Bellini will be hosting the event on the same date at a reduced rate, Livestream.  We are hoping to have Dr. Mark Chironna come in person to lead the Holy Spirit Seminar in 2021.

Stay tuned for more announcements for registration for the Holy Spirit Seminar 2020 Livestream with Dr. Pete Bellini.
