Christ Renews His Parish is a spiritual renewal process that calls together the members of our parish to make Christian community more of a reality. The community then becomes an authentic sign of Christ’s love and a sign of God’s presence with His people. The renewal focuses on a shared vision of Christ-centered parish community: Eucharist, God’s Work, Reconciliation, Shared Faith, Prayer and Discipleship. Over 500 men and women of St. Mary Parish have experienced this weekend retreat for spiritual and faith development.
The structure of the renewal is a two-day, overnight retreat–the Men’s formation and weekend is separate from the Women’s formation and weekend. It is parishioners ministering to parishioners. There is a formational period leading to team ministry of the next renewal weekend and responsibility for the renewal process is transferred from team to team.
