|"ARISE Together in Christ provides an opportunity for clergy, parishioners, and all members of our Catholic community to experience God’s wondrous love by committing to a period of renewal through prayer and sharing of our faith. The time is right to bring our people together in an endeavor centered on the loving and healing message of Jesus."|
- Cardinal Seán O’Malley, Archbishop of Boston
"We are excited about ARISE Together in Christ. The process brings three important principles to guide our implementation of our Synod’s goal of developing leadership in the parishes and in the diocesan church: effective leadership formation, excellent resources, and ongoing pastoral support. These elements assure effective formation of pastoral leaders and spiritual development. Having the RENEW International team leading and inspiring us is a blessing and a grace. The Diocese of Stockton is grateful!"
- Msgr. Robert Silva,
Director, Office of Pastoral Leadership, Diocese of Stockton
"I consider RENEW International’s parish renewal programs to be at the top of the list of the most valuable gifts given by the Holy Spirit to the Church over the past three decades. RENEW has consistently done its homework in terms of theological grounding and provided the best dynamics and resources for effectively communicating the message. The integration of culturally-diverse parish audiences, such as Hispanics, has been outstanding. By stressing the centrality of small, faith-sharing communities, RENEW goes to the heart of what the Church must be."
