The Msgr. Thomas A. Kleissler Legacy Society is a way for you to help continue to foster renewal in the Catholic tradition. Msgr. Kleissler is a priest in the Archdiocese of Newark and the co-founder of RENEW International.

Under his visionary leadership, millions of Catholics have deepened their relationship with God, the Church and their parish communities.
