Ever wonder why St. Jude is such a special place? Why people seem so warm and welcoming and why so many are hugging each other? In reality, there are many reasons - but one really big reason is CRHP. What is CRHP? It's an acronym that stands for Christ Renews His Parish. CRHP is a two day retreat, held at St. Jude twice a year, that starts on Saturday morning and ends Sunday afternoon. It is given by lay people who have attended the retreat themselves and have experienced a unique tool with which to enliven and deepen their own faith life. It is the gift that keeps on giving, as it continually renews and transforms our parish into the magnificent community we are today. There are still spots available for the women’s retreat. If you are looking for a way to expand your knowledge of our beautiful Catholic faith, while at the same time growing closer to Jesus, then sign up today!
