Renewing Parish Evangelization



The parish was involved in a three-year parish-based evangelization program called RENEW. It utilized small faith-sharing groups that came together for Scripture reading and reflection.

In an effort to continue Renew’s successful evangelization mission, Bishop Fliss created the Office of Evangelization in January 1993. Retreat programs, such as Teens Encounter Christ, Beginning Experience, Cursillo and Koinonia, have since become important evangelization tools.
