From the Trenches Plus: Leading Renewal in a small parish

Tuesday, January 24, 2023 | 8 PM Eastern | 7 PM Central | 5 PM Pacific

Priests and parishioners across North America want to see their parishes renewed. And while many parishes are seeing success by following DR's principles and building strong leadership teams, there are others that are struggling.

In fact, parishes without a large full-time staff, or available resources often feel as though renewal just isn't possible for them.

We get it–working with a limited staff and budget can feel crippling. At Divine Renovation, we've helped all kinds of parishes in their unique contexts become missional. This is why you’re invited to register for our first-ever January FTT Plus, Punching Above Your Weight: Leading renewal in a small parish.

So, Register today!

Strong Catholic families are needed in our parishes and society more than ever. As Saint John Paul II once said, “the future of humanity passes by way of the family”. But the reality is, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to pass on the Faith to the next generation in a secularized world.

Join our next From the Trenches event, where you will:
Hear from Fr. Tim Donovan, Founder and President of Faith and Family Life Catholic Ministries Discover insights to help your parish become family-centric Receive tools to help engage the next generation in the passing-on of the Faith

So, register today! And be a part of renewing the Church, one family at a time.

Navigating the Realities of Multi-Church Parishes

Thursday, March 2, 2023: 7 PM London

Parish closures, mergers, and the increase in multi-church parishes are realities we’ve been facing more and more in recent years. But with fewer priests and the lack of seminary training on facing this reality, many are asking: how do we navigate this period well? How do you avoid spreading yourself too thin? What are some tips and practical approaches to leadership that allow both priests and lay leaders to support each other in this type of parish ministry? Join Fr. Michael Doyle, Fr. Kieron O’Brien, and DR Leadership Coach Rob McDowell in this online event this March to learn how.

Leadership Retreat for Young Priests

April 26-28, 2023 • Kilcoy Castle, Inverness (UK)

Note: This is a retreat is open to priests in the UK ordained in the last five years • If you’re like most recently-ordained priests, the first few years of your priesthood must have been quite hectic: chances are, you’ve taken on many parish (and even diocesan) responsibilities, adapting to our rapidly-changing culture and the need for new evangelistic methods, and growing into leadership roles at a rapid pace. If this sounds like you, Divine Renovation would love to invite you to a leadership retreat this 26-28 April 2023. Enjoy the beautiful setting of Kilcoy Castle near Inverness as you spend three days of prayer, worship, fellowship with brother priests, and dedicated leadership coaching from Divine Renovation’s Matt Regitz and Dr. Hannah Vaughan-Spruce.

This retreat is made available at no cost to you, thanks to the generous support of a friend of Divine Renovation. To sign up, please email us at [email protected].
