RENEW International was inspired by the dreams of two priest. Monsignors Tom Kleissler and Tom Ivory shared the same vision of a renewed church. From 1978 - 1980 the people of Archdiocese of Newark enjoyed the spiritual growth and unity this vision engendered. Over the past 26 years RENEW International has been gifted with talented, committed team members who have provided ongoing reflection and leadership. By working with parish spiritual renewal and evangelization, small christian communities stand at the heart of this mission.
In 2001, in response to the September terrorist attacks, RENEW International developed and distributed its faith sharing resource. "Grieving the Death of a Loved One" along with a session from "Disciples of Non-Violence". Renew International continues today helping communities heal from crisis.
