NOTICE - Covid-19 Pandemic Cancellations:
The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted our lives in many ways. Prayer groups and community meetings of charismatic communities have not met in their normal manner for the last two months. It looks as if these kinds of gatherings will be suspended until the end of May, 2020.
Catholic Renewal Ministries regularly scheduled events have also been affected. Two events that are most prominent on the CRM calendar are the annual Pentecost Mass and the annual conference in July.
Though it looks like public Mass in some form will be allowed beginning on the weekend of Pentecost, it seems prudent that CRM not host a Pentecost Mass this year. We are encouraging everyone who is able to celebrate with their home parishes. Give praise to the Lord for the gift of the Spirit with your home parish as we celebrate our first gathering in ten weeks!
The 2020 charismatic conference has also been cancelled. Though our planning team had everything in place for this year’s conference, we were unsure about hosting the conference. As it turned out, the decision was pretty much taken out of our hands. Magnificat High School informed us that they had cancelled all events at the Magnificat High School’s Center for the Performing Arts through July 31st. They also said that they would not be rescheduling any cancelled events this year.
Please keep your eye on our virtual calendar of events. We will be hosting charismatic Mass through the summer and fall. Deacon Ralph Poyo will be leading a mini-conference on Friday, September 18 and Saturday, September 19. The site and other details have not yet been determined.
“But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in the love of God and wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal.” (Jude20-21)

Thank you,
Fr. Robert Franco, Bishop's Liaison to the Charismatic Renewal

All Masses and events are subject to change due to the coronavirus policies of the State of Ohio and the Diocese of Cleveland. We will try our best to keep this website updated. If you are unsure that a Mass or event will take place, please call the appropriate contact number.

We are an organization of Catholic Christians dedicated to the renewal of the Church (ad intra) and the world (ad extra) in the power of the Holy Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ.  The Charismatic Renewal is born of, and sustained by, the wondrous outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our day, "... as at a new Pentecost" (Pope John XXIII). We are part of the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland, within the Secretariat for Parish Life and Development and serve as the umbrella organization for the officially recognized Catholic charismatic prayer groups in the diocese.
Fr. Robert Franco, Bishop's Liaison to the Charismatic Renewal

"I sense that the moment has come to commit all of the Church's energies to a new evangelization and to the mission ad gentes" (Pope John Paul II, Mission of the Redeemer) "The Holy Spirit is the principal agent of the new evangelization."
