“You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.”
2 Cor 9:11
ICCRS relies on the support of those we serve in order to continue our mission. By your generous financial support, prayers, testimonies, and participation in ICCRS events—we continue to carry out our responsibilities in favour to the worldwide CCR as mandated by the Vatican in 1993.
As a service organisation, ICCRS has grown much since its beginning—in vision, scope, and services. We thank all of those who have supported us in their own way so that the fruit of the CCR could be made known all over the world. ICCRS is always undertaking new projects and improving existing ones to better our services and communicate to our brothers and sisters in Christ about the developments in the Charismatic Renewal worldwide. However, these projects can only be completed with the necessary resources.
We ask you for your continued support. Here are some ways to help:
- Keep ICCRS in your prayers.
- Promote ICCRS to your friends and family. Share your testimonies and send them to us, as your experiences may help others in similar situations throughout the world.
- Participate in ICCRS events. ICCRS holds events throughout the year with some of the best theologians, clergy, and lay leaders who are able to share their leadership experiences with you. This is one of the best ways to support the international CCR and give back to your local communities.
- Subscribe to the ICCRS Newsletter and ICCRS Leadership Formation to continue receiving the insight of leaders throughout the year. Contribute by asking questions to the ICCRS Doctrinal Commission or sending us a testimony of CCR activity in your areas.
- According to your needs, ICCRS also needs financial support. Your donations and long-term support are integral in continuing our operations. If possible, commit to supporting ICCRS in a more stable way by subscribing to the ICCRS Hope Sack Project.
ICCRS is counting on you, and we thank all of our supporters throughout the years!

Annual Financial Report 2013
By Cyril John, chairman of the ICCRS Finance Committe.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
“O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever” (Ps 136:1). This is the thought that is uppermost in my mind as I look back to the year 2013 and all that the Lord has done for us. Above all the Lord blessed us with Pope Francis who is a staunch supporter of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal. For ICCRS it has been a year of abundant blessings. We have been able to reach out to all corners of the world through various initiatives and also serve the worldwide Renewal in all of its various streams and expressions. While thanking the Lord for all the blessings we continue to receive through ICCRS, I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to everyone who contributed generously to support the work of ICCRS. We also would like to acknowledge that your support did help ICCRS in a big way in carrying on its operations and fulfill the mandate given to it by the Magisterium of the Church. We at ICCRS, consider it very important that we place a brief report about the financial position of ICCRS before you for information. The following are some highlights relating to the financial position of ICCRS in the year 2013:
Our total income for the year, from January to December, 2013, was 181,000 Euros. It included 84,969 Euros received as donations from National Service Committees (NSCs). Donations from individuals, groups and communities amounted to 64,000 Euros whereas response to Hope Sack appeal was only 2,000 Euros. 17,000 Euros were received as sponsorship for ICCRS staff. The ICCRS newsletter generated revenue of 2,000 Euros and books and material brought in 10,000 Euros. The events organized by ICCRS including the Leadership Training Courses generated 28,000 Euros.
On an average the annual expenses at ICCRS was approx 180,000 Euros per annum. We took stringent measures to control expenditure at ICCRS. As a result, it has been possible to keep the expenditure below the budgeted figures. For example, expenditure for staff salaries and benefits was 97,000 Euros as against 101,000 Euros provided for. Office expenditure, newsletter, outreach, etc are specific areas where further reduction in expenditure could be achieved. With our concerted efforts, despite the increase in costs, the total expenses for the year came to 208,000 Euros, which is 6,000 Euros less than what was budgeted.
Presently ICCRS is left with funds to carry on its work only for a couple of months. In order to continue the service of ICCRS to the world-wide Renewal, we need generous and sacrificial offerings, support and prayers from every one of you - the Sub-Committees, NSCs, communities, groups and individual donors.
ICCRS needs your support
Through financial assistance, you have helped ICCRS to continue its important mission in the Church over the years. We appeal to you to continue to help us to bring to fulfillment some of the very important projects in hand, especially those linked to the Great Jubilee of the CCR in 2017. I exhort you to pledge us support in response to our Hope Sack Appeal. After introducing the facility for online payment, transmitting of funds to ICCRS has become hassle-free. You may please visit our website (www.iccrs.org) today itself and make a donation or pledge your support to the Hope Sack Appeal. “We always give thanks to God for all of you and mention you in our prayers, constantly remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thes 1:2-3). You would be delighted to know that at the ICCRS chapel we intercede and organize special Eucharistic celebration for the intentions of all our benefactors. May the Good Lord continue to bless you abundantly for your generosity!
Annual Financial Report 2012
By Cyril John, Chairman of the ICCRS Finance Committee
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
On behalf of ICCRS, I would like to thank all those who have generously contributed to support its mission for the worldwide Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the year 2012. In his message on 24 April 2000, given to the participants of the Charismatic Gathering at Rimini, Italy, Pope John Paul II effectively highlighted the role ICCRS is called to play for the International Renewal in the following words, “ICCRS is an organisation whose task is to coordinate and encourage an exchange of experiences and reflections among the Catholic and Charismatic Communities all over the world… In view of a growing ecclesiastical awareness within the different Catholic and Charismatic Communities all over the world, ICCRS will play an important role.” Through the support rendered, you have played a key role in helping ICCRS fulfill the mandate given to it by the Hierarchy of the Church.
We at ICCRS consider it very important that we place a brief report about the financial position of ICCRS before you for information. The following are some highlights relating to the financial position of ICCRS in the year 2012:
Our total income for the year, from January to December, 2012, was 160,087 EUR. It included 82,643 EUR received as donations from National Service Committees (NSCs). Donations from individuals, groups and communities amounted to 62,394 EUR whereas response to the Hope Sack appeal was only 5,344 EUR. 300 EUR were received as sponsorship for ICCRS staff. The ICCRS newsletter generated revenue of 2,672 EUR and books and other materials brought in 2,579 EUR.
We took stringent measures to control expenditure at ICCRS. As a result, expenditure for the Council members and meetings was 13,037 EUR less than what was budgeted. There was a saving of 4,763 EUR in office and administrative expenses which includes stipends for volunteer staff. We had to ask two of our volunteer staff to leave due to insufficient income received. Even on the Newsletter, there was a saving of 730 EUR. With our concerted efforts, despite the increase in costs, the total expenses for the year came to only 171,899 EUR, which is 26,101 EUR less than what was budgeted. On behalf of the Finance Committee, I would like to thank our President, Michelle Moran, and Director, Oreste Pesare, for the judicious management of scarce funds.
Presently ICCRS is left with funds to carry on its work only for a couple of months. In order to continue the service of ICCRS to the world-wide Renewal, we need generous and sacrificial offerings, support and prayers from every one of you―the ICCRS Sub-Committees, NSCs, communities, groups and individual donors.
Please support ICCRS
Through financial assistance, you have helped ICCRS to continue its important mission in the Church. Please continue to help us in 2013 and thereafter. I pray that Almighty God will bless all those who generously responded to the prompting of the Holy Spirit to support ICCRS through contributions and prayers.
