Renewal Retreat

Christ Renews His Parish

Christ Renews His Parish is a personal and spiritual parish renewal process.  With the participation in this renewal retreat, the spiritual lives of individuals and faith communities become energized in remarkable ways.  This is the second year that Christ Renews His Parish has been offered in our parish.

Participants attend a two-day renewal weekend in our Family Center focusing on their spiritual journey with Jesus Christ.  Music, faith sharing, special liturgical celebrations, and both individual and group activities help participants reflect on their current relationships with God.  The retreat weekend also helps participants see the way God is actively present in their everyday lives.

The renewal retreat experience also encourages parishioners to seek out ways to enrich their family and personal lives, as well as consider parish ministries, that serve and help make St. Francis by the Sea a vibrant faith-filled community.

Women and men attend separate weekend.

Every parishioner is invited to attend.  Due to space limitations, registration is limited.  You can register, now, for the Women's Weekend:  October 26th and 27th and the Men's Weekend:  November 9th and 10th.

Forms are available in our Church Narthex, in the parish office, or by clicking on the link below and downloading a copy.
