The History of WCF:  con't

Since then, WCF has always had a Catholic priest as its spiritual advisor. All lectures, teachings and prayers shared are from the deposit of Catholic doctrine and viewpoint under the guidance of Our Holy Fathers, Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, our present Pope Francis, our San Diego Diocese bishops, our current pastor, Father Michael Robinson, and our spiritual advisor, Father Michael Barry SS.CC.

WCF seeks to carry out the Great Commission, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15. We desire to obey Christ to “Feed my lambs, tend my sheep” John 21:15-16. Through WCF we have embraced this scripture;”The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me. He has sent me to bring glad tidings to the lowly, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners.” Is: 61:1-2. We receive and employ the Charismatic gifts of the Holy Spirit, 1 Corinthians 12.

Several ministries accomplish the above whose members are commissioned for service during a Mass. Praise and worship through the music ministry, small group sharing and prayer teams through the Leadership Ministry, , and a prayer ministry that coordinates a phone tree that calls out the immediate and serious prayer intentions of the membership. For the last 30+ years, the WCF Retreat Team has coordinated and facilitated a weekend in a Christian mountain retreat center with world-renown speakers, the Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, healing prayer teams and lectures. Our retreat weekends are offered to women, nationwide, regardless of denomination.

Each week the women complete a lesson from the series: A Journey from the Head to the Heart. The “Journey” series are written with much prayer and guidance from the Holy Spirit by Angie Lake, Teaching Leader. Ten school years of the study have received a Nihil Obstat from Robert Faricy, SJ; Six school years of the series received the Nihil-Obstat from Bernadene M. Carr, STL and the Imprimatur on all by Bishop Robert Brom of the Diocese of San Diego.

The weekly meetings begin with praise and worship in song, orientation of new members, small group sharing of the lesson, and lecture on the scriptures from the study, followed by a sharing of answered prayer, more praise, worship and prayer for written petitions for the membership’s intentions. Prayer teams by the leadership are available for individual prayer at the conclusion of the meeting.
