  • Christ Renews His Parish

    Christ Renews His Parish is an overnight retreat at the church in which men and women renew their faith through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. These retreats are a great way to grow in faith and fellowship with other parishioners. Those who have participated in a Christ Renews His Parish weekend truly become renewed and can’t wait to have someone else reap the same rewards. Working with our pastor, the leaders of this ministry themselves gain numerous benefits and grow in their desire to share their love for Christ and his teachings.
