“CRHP” is an acronym that stands for “Christ Renews His Parish.” It is a two-day retreat that is offered to all parishioners and others who wish to participate. It is held annually for women and men at St. Anne Retreat Center in Melborne, KY.
Women’s – March 19-20, 2022
Men’s – September 24-25, 2022
Christ Renews His Parish is a personal and parish spiritual renewal process. CRHP is for spiritual renewal and community-building. It is intended to strengthen personal faith commitments to God and to the parish. As Catholic Christians, we are called to witness to one another the amazing things God has done for us. The CRHP process allows us to do just that — take a break from our busy lives; maybe put things in a better perspective about our faith life; share our faith and life's journeys with others; and get to know God through His works.
The CRHP program is designed to bring members of our parish together in Christ. It is an effort to make us more aware of what our faith means and what it means to be a parishioner. The weekend includes reflection by team members about their life experiences and faith journeys, group activities, Mass and prayer.
The weekend is also an opportunity for each individual to respond to Christ’s call to a closer and deeper relationship with Him in a relaxed atmosphere.
A team of fellow parishioners who have made a previous renewal weekend present the weekend. It begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday and ends by about 3 p.m. on Sunday. There will be a Eucharistic celebration for those who attend the weekend on Saturday evening.
St. Anne’s Retreat Center in Melbourne will put you at rest! Your private room will have a comfortable bed, including linens. Bathrooms and showers are located on each floor for your convenience. There will be regular breaks for drinks and snacks.
The registration fee to attend the weekend is $55. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you have questions regarding registration, they may be directed to the parish office at:
St. Mary Parish
Personal invitations will be sent to prospective attendees by CRHP Team Members or complete the information form and submit to St. Mary Parish Office, c/o Jenn Ledonne.
Praying for guidance about the decision to attend is important. If you feel that Christ is calling you through the Holy Spirit, or through a friend or family member, please prayerfully consider joining us.
CRHP has impacted almost 1000 lives since it began at St. Mary Parish over 25 years ago. Each year those who have participated in CRHP are asked to “pay it forward” to allow someone else to experience CRHP. Won’t you consider donating? Your donation, no matter the size, will help offset the costs of the retreat weekend. Donations can be placed in the collection basket or dropped at the parish office marked “CRHP Donation.” Thank you so much for passing on the gift of CRHP!
