What is “Christ Renews His Parish?”

Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) is a process designed to bring parish members together in a spirit of Christian community.

CRHP is about renewing the mind and nourishing the soul with other men and women who value the need to take some time away for fellowship, prayer, laughter and support.  

What CRHP is NOT:

  • It is not a silent retreat
  • It is not a parish organization
  • It is not public confession
  • It is not an emotional cult
  • It is not a parish clique

Prayer for the Renewal of St. Teresa of Avila

Ever living God, who most generously provides for all our needs, we thank you for bringing Christ Renews to our community.

Let our hearts and minds be open to your words.  Help us receive your knowledge while we renew our faith. Let us recognize the importance of taking ownership of our parish so we may become willing servants. 

Help us know our gifts and talents and share them generously.  Strengthen our commitment to our faith community and to building your Kingdom. 

We pray for you to strengthen us, empower us, unify us and bless us through your Son, Jesus Christ, who came so that we might have life and have it to the fullest.
