Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP)

Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) is a renewal process that is led by fellow parishioners for fellow parishioners.  The retreat can help renew and deepen ones faith and develop a new relationship with Jesus and make new friends in the process.  The overall goal of the weekend is to renew the parish.  It is also an excellent way to really get to know people attending Mass and parish events.

The renewal weekend starts on Saturday morning and ends on Sunday afternoon.  The process consists of talks presented by the team, table sharing and sacraments. They are held at the KC Hall where all participants eat, sleep and pray together. The men and women retreats are separate.  

After the weekend is over, the participants are asked to discern their service to the parish and community. The participants are also invited to become part of the next team, which is led by a lay director and spiritual director, following the manual furnished by the renewal program. 

CHRP was originally started in Indiana in 1969 and is now active in many parishes in the United States, including many in our diocese, and in other countries.

The next Women's CRHP will be March 4-5, 2017
