Then CRHP is the perfect retreat for you!
What is CRHP?
Christ Renews His Parish, often pronounced “Chirp” is a weekend retreat designed to bring participants together in Christ and emphasizes continued growth in Christian life. It is found throughout the United States. During the weekend you will find love and laughter, great food and friendship, and a renewed sense of belonging.
Where and when does the weekend take place?
It is held on March 29,30,31, 2018 at Saint Joseph Catholic Church, 87 Lacy Street, NW, Marietta, Georgia 30060 in the Adult Education Room. The weekend begins with dinner, Friday night at 6 PM and ends no later than 4 PM on Sunday.
What happens during the weekend?
10-20 fellow parishioners from prior CRHP weekends conduct the weekend. You may expect an opportunity, in a relaxed setting, to hear Christ’s call to you and to respond to a deeper and closer relationship with Him.
The weekend is centered on themes and reflections by team members followed by group activities and small group discussions. (You can share as much or as little as you desire) The sharing is stimulated by a liturgical, scriptural and prayerful atmosphere. All discussions and dialogue are kept confidential.
