Dear Friend,

Jesus compared the Kingdom of God to the tree, which grew out of a grain of mustard seed, becoming so great that gave shade and shelter to birds (The Gospel according to St. Luke 13: 18-19).

"Effatha" Community is one of the branches, or even one of the leaves that grew thanks to God, and thanks to God Who continues to exist in the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Charismatic Renewal  EFFATHA in Gdansk

Invites to prayer meetings:

on every Friday at 6.30 pm, at the Queen of the Apostles Chapel

(the entrance from the Elzbietanska Street),

on every first Friday of the month at 4:00 pm, at  the St. Elizabeth Church.


The Community EFFATHA's prayer meetings begin with the Mass at the Chapel of Our Lady Queen of Apostles by the St. Elizabeth Church.  After the Eucharist, we continue to further prayer led by animators, during which we worship God in spontaneous prayer in languages. We thank for all the graces we received from His hands. We apologize for our weaknesses and failings, and confidently ask for the gifts and charisms of the Holy Spirit. The priest present at the meeting directs catechesis based on the passages of Holy Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church to us.

An important part of the prayer meeting is reading and meditating on God's Word, and sharing reflections regarding its content. During the meetings, members of the community also share their testimonies of God's actions in their lives, and they share the gift of prophecy and knowledge through the message of joy, light, comfort, hope, and love of neighbor. In addition, the community ministers on the first Friday of the month with intercession prayer, where everyone can experience the encounter with the Living God.

The beginning: "The parable of the Kingdom of God and the three measures of flour"

(Matthew 13:33) (Luke 13:21)

EFFATHA Community is the Charismatic Renewal Movement in the Holy Spirit in the Archdiocese of Gdańsk.

The Community beginnings are dated on 1977, and are associated with the initiative of three young women: Izabela Cieślewicz, Lucyna Minkiewicz and Barbara Tomczak, which have been firstly meeting in a home prayer group.
