2024 St. Barnabas Men's CRHP Weekend of February 3rd/4th

All men of St. Barnabas are invited and welcome to the Christ Renews His Parish Weekend February 3rd/4th 2024. This overnight experience is designed to help examine and rediscover your relationship with Christ and deepen your connections with fellow members of the St. Barnabas faith community. More than 1,000 St. Barnabas parishioners have taken part in the CRHP experience over the past 20+ years. They have found this weekend retreat is a great opportunity for self-reflection and to get to meet and know new fellow parishioners. If you are interested please let me - [email protected]/(312) 286-0722 or Paul Wojcicki at [email protected]/(312) 593-1307 (call or text).  Please join us!

Our next St. Barnabas Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) Men's Retreat will be held February 3-4, 2024 in the School Learning Center. 

CRHP retreats are a wonderful opportunity to take a step back from your busy life to strengthen and renew your faith journey.  

What CRHP is NOT:

  • It's not a silent retreat.
  • It's not a public confession.
  • It's not a parish ministry.
  • It's not an emotional cult.
  • It's not a pre-selected group or clique.


What Happens During the Weekend?

During the weekend you will listen to a number of individuals who have volunteered to give a personal witness to the power of Jesus Christ in their lives. Group discussions, usually made up of 4-5 people, and responses, follow each presentation. Most in-depth discussions take place amongst your own table. You'll be free to share as much or as little as you feel comfortable.

There will be readings of scripture, time for prayer, and time set aside for personal reflection. You and your needs will always be respected. The sharing dialogue takes place in a very liturgical, scriptural, and prayerful atmosphere.

Sacraments are an integral part of the weekend. There will be an opportunity to go to confession and the weekend will conclude with a private Mass. All experiences shared on the weekend are confidential, unless otherwise expressed by the participants.

CRHP is a wonderful opportunity to take time for yourself and renew your own spirituality and, along the way, meet some great new friends. We will also be offering the opportunity to the women of Christ the King, St. John Fisher and St. Cajetan as part of the Renew My Church process we are going through with our neighboring parishes.  For more information about CRHP, please call Katie Durkin Kelly at: 773/350-6885 or email
