Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) provides Catholic parishioners of St. Brendan an overnight renewal experience in the parish setting through separate men’s and women’s weekends, offering personal witness, faith-sharing, prayer and celebration of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.

CRHP is an opportunity to meet and grow closer to others within our parish community.  This renewal weekend will take you on a journey through the lives of others in order to better reflect on your own life journey.
CRHP provides parishioners an opportunity to rest, breathe, reflect, renew and connect; helps parishioners to more actively live the sacramental and prayer life of a Catholic; and encourages, inspires and empowers parishioners to become fully involved in the life of the parish — participating in parish ministries and activities, attending parish events, and participating in parish programs.

CRHP is specifically designed for Catholic parishioners, age 21 and above, who are seeking spiritual renewal through prayer and sacrament, a deeper love of Jesus and a stronger connection to the family and mission of St. Brendan Catholic Church. If you are a parishioner of St. Brendan and you feel that Christ, through the Holy Spirit, may be calling you to this weekend renewal, come and see!  Our next weekends will take place on:

  • March 10-11, 2023 (Women)
  • Spring 2023 date coming soon (Men)

Registration will open about a month prior to the scheduled weekend. Attendee Cost is $75 payable at time of registration. Attendance is limited to 35 men and 30 women. To register for either weekend click on the button below

The weekend begins Saturday at 8am and concludes Sunday at 3pm. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on Saturday and breakfast and lunch are provided on Sunday. The weekend will take place at St. John Bosco School across the street. You can attend the weekend with no further commitment; however, many choose to continue their CRHP experience by participating in the presentation of the next CRHP weekend.  In this way, your spiritual growth and fellowship with your team continues well beyond the weekend.

Experiencing forgiveness and offering thanksgiving through the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist are a central part of the weekend with liturgies celebrated on both Saturday and Sunday. The CRHP weekend is given to Catholic parishioners by Catholic parishioners and by our parish clergy. Parishioners are renewed and empowered to deeper engagement in the parish home of St. Brendan.
