What is CHRP? The sound of a bird? An abbreviation for chiropractic? Here is what it is:

Christ Renews His Parish

Christ Renews His Parish is a copyrighted parish renewal process that has existed since 1969 and has been recommended by the renewal office of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. It has been used as the primary instrument of personal & parish renewal in over 1200 parishes in 35 states in the United States and in five other countries.

Christ Renews His Parish can be described in four parts:

A. A person begins by experiencing a weekend: take the next step in your spiritual journey.

B. Then becomes part of a team: adult faith formation, preparation, and catechesis.

C. Next, host the next weekend: present weekend for next group, authentic experience of lay ministry in the parish with a renewed spirit.

D. Finally, search for the Lord's call to what comes next in one's life: Sends people into service ministries in the parish, community and diocese.

Please feel free to make a comment below if you have been a participant in the CHRP program. Please share any suggestions you have for music that fits the ideas of renewal, spirtual journey, calling forth (mission) and evangelization.
