RENEW International's Canonical Status and Theological Review

With over 5 million participants, in 13,000 parishes, RENEW: Spiritual Renewal for the 21st Century is the premier evangelization and renewal process in the country. RENEW's practical and proven approach creates a diocesan-wide climate that fosters the New Evangelization and implements the goals of the U.S. Bishops' strategy and plan, Go and Make Disciples.

  • RENEW is a three-year, parish centered process of spiritual renewal and evangelization that enables people to develop a closer relationship with Christ, grow in community, and reach out in service to others.
  • RENEW provides spiritual formation for everybody in the parish. RENEW uses a pastoral theology suited for parish life today.
  • Faith sharing books are available in 13 languages plus special editions for young adults, teens and families, prisoners and individuals with special needs. All materials have been thoroughly reviewed and have obtained the Imprimatur and Nihil Obstat.
This process will enliven your parish, encouraging members to build community and reach out to others. Over 98% of participants would recommend RENEW to a fellow parishioner!
