We encourage the adult men
and women of St. Pius who are seeking to grow more deeply in
their relationship with Christ to consider this special weekend
of spiritual renewal. Come to enjoy fellowship, explore
scripture and how it relates to our lives, and to forge lasting
and meaningful relationships. With renewed grace, we hope to
impact our families and communities in a meaningful way. This is
how Christ renews his parish.
What is a
Christ Renews His Parish Weekend?
It is a time to relax,
pray, and think about our priorities.
It is a time to get to
know others in the parish and grow as a community.
It is an opportunity to
examine, rediscover, and intensify your personal
relationship with Christ.
It is a weekend of
reflection and sharing of spiritual and real life issues.

The format involves short
talks given by the Christ Renews His Parish team. These
talks reflect themes of the CRHP program, such as Renewal, Spirituality, and
Christian Awareness. As part of a small group, you will reflect
upon the talks and how they may be relevant to your life and
your spiritual growth.
There is time set aside for quiet
reflection and you will also have the opportunity to receive the
sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation.
While spending time with your fellow
parishioners you will have the chance to get to know one another
and are sure to share some laughs too!
Christ Renews His Parish
Christ Renews His Parish is a
copyrighted parish renewal process that has existed since 1969
and is recommended by the renewal office of the United States
Conference of Catholic Bishops. It has been used as the primary
instrument of personal and parish renewal in over 1,000 parishes
in 32 states and 84 Catholic dioceses Over the last 40 years,
thousands of women and men have done exactly that by
participating in a Christ Renews His Parish renewal weekend.
Most parishioners experience a renewed realization of God's
grace working in their lives and the Spirit then empowers them
to strive to achieve God’s will in all facets of their lives.
We hope Christ Renews His Parish continues to
be an instrument of celebration for our Catholic faith, prayer,
liturgy, fellowship and renewal.

Description of a Christ Renews His Parish weekend
This is a two-day program
unlike any you have previously attended. Parishioners share with
one another the ways they have found meaning, hope, peace and
love in their lives. The experience is personal, inspirational,
and fulfilling. Many participants feel that this experience is
among the most powerful and positive of their lives.
This is a wonderful way to establish a stronger
bond with God and your fellow parishioners. The atmosphere is
casual and you will begin friendships that can last a lifetime.
Many of your fellow parishioners, who have previously attended,
will be happy to share their experience.
The "Christ Renews His Parish" Weekend is a
break from our busy schedule of personal, business and family
obligations so that we can refresh ourselves spiritually.
The weekend renewal is open to all parishioners
who are at least 18 years of age. You begin your weekend at
7:30 a.m. on Saturday and is concluded by 3 p.m. on Sunday.
The weekend is a free gift
from the parish. As Christ was a servant to his apostles, you
too, will be a recipient of service and love from those who have
gone before you.
Your hosts are parishioners
who attended the renewal weekend prior to yours. You will be
invited to join other men/women to prepare and present the next
renewal weekend. This is not a requirement, and you will have
time to discern if the weekend experience was powerful enough
for you to want to continue on. Those who accept this
invitation will be guided in the team formation process and are
ultimately able to experience the joy of giving the weekend to
the next group of parishioners.
Each weekend is unique and as
special as the parishioners attending.
Consider joining us for a
weekend and experience the power of Christ Renewing His People!
