About Us

Ask not what your Diocese can do for you.  Ask what you can do for your Diocese.

Catholic Renewal Ministry is. . . CATHOLICS BECOMING MORE CATHOLIC


Vibrant Worship: an atmosphere where God is lifted up through heart-felt songs of praise while we are opened to His presence in Spirit-led worship.

Relevant Scripture: an emphasis on The Word of God that comes alive in inspirational messages, applicable to real life.

Community:  a building up and uniting with others of our faith

Equipped:  helping to develop Catholic Christian maturity in both discipleship and ministry

Authentic: we are committed to unity with the Roman Catholic Church in the context of our existing parish and diocesan structure

We bear witness to the love of Jesus Christ that is renewed through the baptism of His Holy Spirit, which empowers His Kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy to be built up within the Catholic Church. Our purpose is to grow in holiness through an intimate relationship with Jesus through prayer, to fan into flame the grace of Pentecost and to foster openness to the work of the Holy Spirit among God’s people. We sponsor Life in The Spirit Seminars, Conferences, Days of Praise and Worship and help develop small, intimate prayer groups.
