Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) Women’s Retreat March 25-26!

Christ Renews His Parish, or CRHP (pronounced “chirp”) is a spiritual renewal weekend designed to help individuals grow in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ and with others in the Holy Spirit parish community. It is a time to relax, pray, reevaluate priorities, and refresh ourselves spiritually. Does your spiritual life need a boost? Would you like to get to know some of your fellow parishioners? Attend the men’s or women’s retreat that will be hosted right here on the campus of Holy Spirit by Holy Spirit parishioners and clergy. The experience is personal, inspirational, and fulfilling. The atmosphere is casual and you will form friendships that can last a lifetime.

Christ Renews His Parish Men’s Retreat, April 1-2

The next Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) Men’s Retreat is April 1-2. You might ask yourself “Why should I consider going on a retreat?” The short answer is “It’s good for you.”

A CRHP Men’s Retreat is a time to listen to other men who face the same challenges and difficulties that you do and to hear how their Catholic Faith has helped them to respond to life in our secular world; to see that we are all fellow travelers on the same journey to heaven and we do not travel alone. Think of a retreat as time to reconnect with God, time growing your faith, time developing your God given skills that you can share to help family, friends, and fellow travelers, time connecting with new friends and fellow Catholic believers in community. Looking at it in this manner, you will realize that you cannot afford to let this opportunity go.

Speaking of “afford”, the retreat is free. It will not cost you a single penny. The retreat begins on Saturday, April 1st at 7:30 AM at Holy Spirit School. Everything that you need will be provided. The retreat concludes on Sunday, April 2nd at 3:00 PM.   Contact:
