What Is Divine Renovation?

Parishes around the world are emptying, aging, sleeping, dying. It doesn’t need to be this way. Divine Renovation points a way forward. We don’t have all the answers but we believe we have many of the right questions. And we’ve experienced first-hand what it’s like to be a missional parish. Divine Renovation was birthed out of a real experience of renewal. Fr. James Mallon along with the team at Saint Benedict Parish in Halifax, Canada transformed their parish into a vibrant community of missionary disciples. Pastors, priests and leaders from around the world took notice. The Divine Renovation ministry with its events, books, coaching, and resources is a response to the incredible hunger for renewal. The ministry desires to inspire and equip every leader out there so that they can move their parish from maintenance to mission.

Over the past several years we’ve seen firsthand the transformations in parishes across the world as they move from maintenance to mission. Parishes of all shapes, sizes, and makeups are making missionary disciples through this work. We exist to help parishes make these transformative steps forward.

Organizations love pictures. They love visual models of explaining the things that they do because as human beings, we think in visual stories. If you were to imagine a famous story right now, would you imagine the words that make up that story or would you visualize...

Every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization; indeed, anyone who has truly experienced God’s saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.
