This project is organized by RENEW International Pastoral Service Team which began in 1978 in the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey. This was the first Catholic Organization to develop a diocese-wide, spiritual renewal and evangelization process for parishes. The Archdiocese of Miami invited the group to extend its services to parishes who would like to join. Holy Redeemer Church is one of the parishes that joined the Why Catholic process. The core of all of these processes remains the same: to help people become better hearers and doers of the Word of God. This is done by encouraging and supporting the formation of small communities who gather prayerfully to reflect on and share the Word of God; to make better connection between faith and life; and to live their faith more concretely in family, work, and community life, as well as in the public square.
