ARISE Together in Christ provides a total renewal experience for the parish, spiritually transforming people through the proven model of small-group faith sharing. It also offers parish enrichment opportunities and encourages works of charity and justice.
Over a three-year period, there are five six-week blocks of time, each called a "Season". Each of these Seasons has a major gospel theme that is broken down into weekly themes. To ensure a successful experience, RENEW International provides comprehensive training for the ARISE Diocesan Team, ARISE Parish Teams, and parish Small Community Leaders.
