Life has a way of teaching us that all of our commitments, including our commitment to Christ, need continual renewal if we are to be faithful!
Christ Renews is an ongoing process for the personal spiritual renewal of men and women over the age of 18 that results in the renewal of our faith community. The process begins with a weekend of prayer, talks given by members of our Midland Area parishes, times of silence and reflection, social activities, and small group discussion. This all takes place in a relaxed, prayerful, and caring atmosphere. Participants are free to share as much or as little as they wish. This is a wonderful time spent exploring our faith and growing in our relationship with Christ.
Think and pray seriously about this opportunity
- do you need to deepen your faith?
- do you need space for your inner journey?
- is your life out of balance?
- are you out of touch with the action of God in your life?
- are you seeking to enrich your understanding of what it means to be a Christian in today’s world?
- do you see yourself as “church”? As a disciple of Jesus?
- do you need to listen anew to Jesus’ call?
What about the cost?
The renewal weekend is a gift from the team putting on the weekend to the participants attending the weekend. Volunteers provide food and service.
Who facilitates the weekend?
A team of people from the previous Christ Renews weekend is in formation now with a Spiritual Director, preparing to make your weekend a truly special experience.
What happens during the weekend?
The many activities include prayer, reflection, talks, small group discussions, and social activities; all in a relaxed, prayerful, and caring atmosphere. Participants are free to share as much, or as little, as they wish. The entire weekend is informal. Casual clothes are recommended.
There will be a Reconciliation Service and we participate in Sunday Eucharist together with the rest of the parish community. There are opportunities for private and shared prayer.
It is a Spirit-filled weekend!
