At a Divine Renovation event for parish renewal, a woman is deep in prayer.

Your parish was made for mission.

After all, Jesus didn’t give the Church a mission — He gave his mission a Church. The trouble is (and this is hard to hear), most parishes are living through an identity crisis: they’ve forgotten their purpose.

And so congregations are shrinking.

Parishes are aging.

Priests are discouraged and disengaging.

But that’s not the end of the story. Resurrection is.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, you can bring life back to your parish and people to Jesus.

Imagine a parish where...

Although every parish is unique, these Three Keys to Parish Renewal have transformed hundreds of them.

When evangelization is the focus and people encounter Jesus, parishes grow.

The Best of Leadership

When parish leaders serve out of the best leadership principles, parishes thrive.

"We were struggling with moving the church forward. The leadership coaching sessions have been immensely useful. We see people all of a sudden coming to us, and they want to contribute."

Parish renewal isn't easy.

But you don't have to do it alone.

We accompany priests and lay leaders who desire to see their parish come alive by providing them with the tools and coaching they need to bring renewal.

Inspired by Fr. James Mallon’s book Divine Renovation and following the example of missional parishes, we’ve come to understand what’s necessary to turn parishes around. And since 2016, we’ve shared our experience with parish leaders around the world so they can bring their parish from maintenance to mission.

We can’t wait to see what God does through your church.

🇺🇸 🇨🇦 Missional Engine Failure: 3 Alpha Breakdowns in a Parish

Tuesday, Feb.13, 2024 • 10 AM Pacific • Noon Central • 1 PM Eastern

Parish leaders want to use Alpha as a tool for bringing more people to Jesus and growing disciples. Alpha can be the engine that drives our missional energy in a parish, but there are some things we can do to unintentionally cause "missional engine failure." This makes re-launching or starting Alpha without repeating past mistakes tricky. Divine Renovation is here to help! We can guide parish leaders in understanding how to fix that "missional engine failure" and use Alpha effectively as part of their bigger plan for sharing the faith and developing leaders. Join us for the next From the Trenches online event where you will learn best practices with Alpha and how to use it in your overall mission of helping others encounter the Holy Spirit while improving the parish culture, and nurturing new leaders.
