CHRP (Christ Renews His Parish)

What is CRHP?

CRHP provides Catholic parishioners of St. Brendans an overnight retreat experience in the parish setting through separate men’s and women’s CRHP offering personal witness, faith-sharing, prayer and celebration of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.

CRHP (a) provides parishioners an opportunity to rest, breathe, reflect, renew and connect; (b) helps parishioners to more actively live the sacramental and prayer life of the Catholic; and (c) 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.

Who is CRHP for?

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’s Catholic Church. If you are a parishioner of St. Brendans who has not made a previous CRHP weekend and you feel that Christ, through the Holy Spirit, may be calling you to this weekend renewal, come and see! Our next weekend will take place here in the parish on:

Men's Weekend: October 16th and 17th

Women's Weekend: October 23rd and 24th

What Happens on the Weekend?

The weekend begins on Saturday morning and concludes Sunday afternoon. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on Saturday and breakfast and lunch are provided on Sunday. Participants sleep at the church on Saturday night.

Participating in the weekend retreat will draw you closer to Christ and deeper reconciliation with God through the lived experiences and testimonies of other parishioners.

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 our parish clergy. Parishioners are renewed and empowered to deeper engagement in the parish home of St. Brendans.
