Welcome to St. Mary’s Christ Renews His Parish Ministry!

Christ Renews His Parish (commonly referred to as CRHP) is a parish-based renewal weekend, designed to deepen the spirituality of adults. Participants hear presentations given by members of the laity, they celebrate the sacraments, and they have time for quiet prayer and reflection. For many people, a CRHP weekend leads to a renewed and energized love for Christ and a deeper desire to be active in the ministries of the parish.

The renewal weekend is hosted at the parish and runs from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon. Renewal weekends are offered for men's groups, and women's groups. After parishioners have attended a CRHP weekend, they are invited to consider becoming part of the lay formation team which will facilitate the next renewal weekend. The National CRHP Organization provides planning materials, outlines and detailed guides for those who are on CRHP teams.

Over 1,400 parishes, locally and nationally, have hosted CRHP renewal weekends over the years. Since St. Mary’s first CRHP renewal weekend in the fall of 2015, over 100 parishioners have attended a renewal weekend. The national organization which organizes CRHP has recently become part of a larger Catholic evangelization ministry called "Dynamic Catholic.”
