CCRO Mission

The Catholic Charismatic Renewal Office in the Archdiocese of St. Paul & Minneapolis serves as an information resource center, sponsoring events and conferences, publishing a monthly newsletter, fostering unity among different charismatic groups and being a point of contact for the archbishop. Our mission is to proclaim the Gospel so all can respond to the call to conversion to Jesus Christ, surrender their lives to the Father and experience transformation through the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.   image-large

The Renewal office organized in 1977 under the name, Upper Midwest Charismatic Region, which was later changed to Catholic Charismatic Renewal Office. There are many organizations that owe their beginnings to the Renewal. These include: parish charismatic prayer groups, Franciscan Brothers of Peace, Companions of Christ, Community of Christ the Redeemer, People of Praise, N.E.T. Ministries, Trinity School, St. Paul’s Outreach, Christians in Commerce, Pro-Life Action Ministries, Steubenville Youth Conference and Jesus Heals Ministry.

Many priests, bishops and religious have had their vocations renewed by their involvement with the Renewal. Thousands of participants have been drawn to the priesthood and religious life. Popes Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis have all voiced strong support of the movement and encouraged participants to seek the good of the whole Church.
