If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then we have just the thing for you. We would like to introduce you to a unique program called Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP). In its simplest form it is a weekend “retreat”, but it is so much more than that. It is a retreat weekend where you will experience a personal spiritual renewal and an abundance of love in a Christian Community. It is a process designed to bring members of our parish together in Christ and Renew HIS Parish. Just ask the over 700 members of our Parish who have taken part in a CRHP weekend. We would love to tell you all about the program. If you are interested, please contact G.F. “Mac” McClelland (macpack1@verizon.net) for more information.

Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP), Ready to Soar in 2017!

On Saturday April, 29th, 80 of the over 600 parishioners who have attended a Christ Renews His Parish weekend met for a few photos, a bit of fellowship, and to discuss future CRHP planning. It was a wonderful time for prior CRHP members (alumni) to remember the experiences of their CRHP Weekend. So many here at St. John’s point to CRHP as having a significant impact on their spiritual, family, and parish lives. Whether you are a long-time parishioner or brand new to the parish, if you are looking for a spiritual recharge and want to get to know more people in the parish then please consider giving yourself this gift by attending the next CRHP weekend. The next Women’s Weekend is September 30 to October 1, 2017 and the next Men’s Weekend is October 7-8, 2017. Contact Mac McClelland at macpack1@verizon.net for more information.

Special thanks to Darren Barnes (Roy Alther’s Brother-in-Law) for the high-flying photography.
