CRHP REGISTRATION FORM
What is CRHP? Christ Renews His Parish is a spiritual renewal process designed to bring members of the parish together in Christ. CRHP (“chirp”) has a clear focus on the Gospel and emphasizes continued growth in Christian life through prayer, scripture study, the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist and fellowship with members of our parish community. The weekend is an excellent opportunity for Catholics to renew their understanding of the basic beliefs and traditions of their faith. It is an opportunity to say “yes” to a closer and deeper relationship with God. Continue reading
