Christ Renews His Parish

A Spiritual Renewal Process

Christ Renews His Parish is a program designed to bring members of a parish together in Christ. It is completely oriented to the parish in order to give both the individual and the parish an opportunity for renewal and growth in the spiritual life. You will hear it referred to as "CRHP" (pronounced chirp).

3) Minister a CRHP weekend 
4) Search for the Lord's call to what is next

What Happens During the Weekend?

The weekend is an opportunity to listen and discuss how Christians function in our modern world. It is also an opportunity for individual spiritual renewal through scripture, prayer, personal reflection and connection with others seeking His love.

Who May Attend?

CRHP is open to all Our Lady of the Visitation parishioners, age 21 or older. We also welcome members from the extended Christian Community.

When and Where Do These Weekends Take Place?

There is one weekend for men and one weekend for women that takes place once a year. These weekend sessions are conducted at the parish school facilities. The weekend begins Saturday morning and ends Sunday afternoon. You can call the Parish Office for more information, for upcoming dates and details!

Will I Be Able to Attend Mass?

Mass will be celebrated Sunday morning and an opportunity for reconciliation will be provided Saturday evening for anyone who desires this sacrament.

Where Do I Sleep?

Sleeping accommodations are in the school classrooms. Mats are provided. You are asked to bring your own sleeping bag or sheets and pillow, along with your own towel, soap, and other toiletries that you might need. We will extend every effort to ensure your comfort.

Meals are provided by Our Lady of the Visitation CRHP Community. There will be regular breaks with coffee, soft drinks, and snacks. We will do our best to accommodate dietary needs.

What Do I Wear?

Casual and comfortable clothing is appropriate for both Saturday and Sunday. Don't forget to bring your pajamas and toiletries.

Who Conducts the Weekend?

The CRHP weekend is conducted by a team made up of two team leaders and a group of people who have attended previous weekends. This team strengthens their own renewal process by giving of themselves and presenting the weekend to a new group of invitees.
