Renew International is a Roman Catholic organization that is helping foster spiritual growth among Catholic dioceses and parishes across the United States and the world.
Renew International began in 1976 in the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey. Two priests, Monsignor Tom Kleissler and Monsignor Tom Ivory, shared a dream of a renewed Catholic Church. With the blessings of an Archbishop, the priests pursued their dream, and Renew International was started.
For more than thirty years, Renew International has been assisting in spiritual renewal among communities, churches and individuals. The organization responded to the terrorists attacks of September 11, 2001; and to the sexual abuse crisis within the Catholic Church by offering free faith-sharing resources. The organization also launched a peace-building effort in the African nation of Burundi to assist with inter-tribal conflict.
