Christ Renews His Parish (CHRP)

What is it?
Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) is a parish renewal process that has existed since 1969 and calls together the members of the parish. The CRHP renewal weekend is an experience designed to provide both the individual and the parish community the opportunity to renew their spiritual life.

CRHP is a one-and-a-half-day opportunity to get away from the distractions of our busy world to hear spiritual and inspirational life stories from fellow parishioners. This is a wonderful opportunity to find peace and center your life in Christ.

While the talks are “real world” and very human, they are all tied to scripture and the Holy Spirit. This Renewal Weekend is presented by fellow parishioners.

What Isn’t It?
It is not a test of your biblical knowledge or a church history quiz. It is not a retreat. It is not a girls’ weekend or a guys’ night out. There is no lecturing or sermonizing. It is just heartfelt sharing of our faith journeys. If you are inspired by a talk, you will have a chance to reflect and share on how it relates to your own faith journey.

The Renewal Weekend is meant to strengthen your own faith, renew your commitment and invite Jesus Christ into your daily life. In the process you will get to know other men or women of our parish and will look forward to greeting them at Mass and other parish activities.

Many parishioners find that they are more comfortable participating in parish ministries after the weekend and find this very rewarding.

The seeds planted on the weekend will provide fruit that will enrich the rest of your spiritual life.

All meals, materials, and overnight accommodations will be provided. All you need to bring is you!

Over 5,000 people have experienced a Christ Renews His Parish Renewal Weekend. Christ Renews His Parish first began in 1969 at Holy Family Parish in Parma, Ohio. It has spread across the United States as well as to other countries. This parish-based renewal program is recommended by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Participants in the Christ Renews His Parish renewal weekends have become better friends with each other and, more importantly, have become better friends with God. The nucleus of the parish community atmosphere is often found in those who have made a CRHP Renewal Weekend.
