Because your contribution here is a pledge to:

Transform Parishes

Why Give?

"I believe in the mission and purpose of RENEW International. Through the years RENEW has strengthened my Catholic identity and helped me navigate through the rough spots of life. For Bill and for me the greatest gift we can leave our children and grandchildren is the gift of our beloved Catholic faith. RENEW has and continues to inspire and assist us on our journey."
— Mary Noel Page

Bill and Mary Noel Page have supported RENEW for years, often opening their home to RENEW supporters and staff. Bill was a member of the 40th Anniversary Capital Campaign Steering Committee, and the Pages made a lead gift to the Campaign, which reached its goal in 2021.
