Christ Renews His Parish is
an experience designed to give both the individual and the parish community an opportunity
for renewal and growth in spiritual life. As we grow in awareness of God’s
love and respond to His call, we grow together as a parish family.
CHRIST RENEWS HIS PARISH is a process to bring members of a parish together in Christ. All of our commitments, including our commitment to Christ, need continued renewal if we are to be faithful. Christ Renews His Parish is an effective spiritual renewal process which calls together members of the parish in order to experience personal conversion and Christian community in the environment of our own parish.
The renewal weekends are given for PARISHIONERS by a team that has previously attended a Christ Renews His Parish weekend. They work together in prayer and love to provide you with a two day, one overnight, live-in experience.
Come prepared to have fun and renew your heart. The process is centered around reflections by team members with emphasis on small group discussions and activities.
You will be free to share as much or as little as you are comfortable with. You and your needs will always be respected. The sharing dialogue is stimulated in a very liturgical, scriptural, and prayerful atmosphere.
Sacraments are part of the weekend. Mass is celebrated in the church. Reconciliation is offered with our pastor and visiting priests form neighboring parishes.
YES! The renewal weekend is a gift from the presenting team and the parish. There is no cost to you.
No one is required to get up and speak. You many have the opportunity to share your experiences, but you are not required to.
Christ Renews His Parish is unique in its continuation. Participants have the opportunity to begin planning the next men's or women's weekends soon after they complete their own. You many attend the renewal weekend with no further commitment; however, many of the participants become the new team. The new team members continue the renewal process by presently the next weekend to a new group of parishioners.
The weekend is open to all Parishioners of Sacred Heart Parish who are at least 18 years of age. Christ Renews His Parish is for anyone seeking spiritual renewal, desiring to build up the Body of Christ or gain a deeper sense of purpose within the parish community. Praying for guidance is important. If you feel that Christ, through the Holy Spirit, is calling you...COME!
