Author To Explore Deeper Meaning Of New Age

Published October 4, 2007

Author Moira Noonan will speak on “Is Your Faith Stronger than Your Fascination?” in a set of presentations explaining the deeper meaning of the New Age movement, on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event, which is sponsored by the Catholic Charismatic Renewal and the Knights of Columbus, will take place at Killian Hall.

Noonan will give two talks during the morning session, with a healing service and Benediction at 2 p.m., followed by prayer teams.

Raised as a Catholic, Noonan began apprenticeship in New Age practices and ideas as a college student. Over a 25-year time period, she worked in religious science ministry, as a psychic counselor and a therapist. She became certified or developed expertise in such areas as hypnotherapy, past life regression, astrology, the course in miracles, reiki, channeling, crystals, goddess spirituality, clairvoyance and other occult practices.

In 1993, after an exorcism and a series of powerful conversion experiences, she returned to the Catholic Church and is now a popular speaker in the Christian community, witnessing and evangelizing, and exploring the deeper meaning of the New Age movement.

Noonan has told her story on religious cable and radio stations worldwide, including the Eternal Word Television Network. She is featured in a chapter about her conversion experience in “Prodigal Daughters: Catholic Women Come Home to the Church,” edited by Donna Steichen.

Noonan has also written her story in her book, “Ransomed from Darkness: The New Age, Christian Faith, and the Battle for Souls,” published in 2005.

Cost for the event is $6 per person. Lunch, provided by the Knights of Columbus, is $5 per person.

Killian Hall is located at 908 Killian Hill Road, Lilburn, close to the intersection of Killian Hill and Five Forks Trickum Road, across from Gwinnett Gymnastics.
