“We based our homilies over several weeks on the RPA’s Expect Miracles message series. Never in 23 years of preaching have I had so many people talking about the effects the homilies had on their lives.”
Join The Community
Members of the Rebuilt Parish Association are part of something bigger than themselves. A strong sense of community is cultivated inside the RPA. Our Community Forum is the place for idea sharing, to get encouragement and to post questions or suggestions to other members. Parishes provide Profiles which enable you to find similar profiles and connect and build relationships and grow together. A member Map illustrates where "Rebuilt" churches can be found.
"Since joining the RPA, our parish has been transformed! The RPA/Nativity team has been amazing in passing on their vision of renewal. I encourage any pastor and parish staff seriously interested in revitalizing their church to join the Rebuilt Parish Association.”
Join The Movement
The result of the work of the RPA is a community of like-minded parishes, seeking to grow disciples of Jesus. Our members strive to serve their local faith community in an effective way - by delivering the Good News of the gospel through Mass and a broader weekend experience which is relevant and impactful on the spiritual lives of their parishioners, while also compelling and attractive to the un-churched of their community.
Make Mass the best hour of your parishioners week! Grow your attendance! Grow your offertory! Grow DISCIPLESHIP!
"Being part of The Rebuilt Parish Association gives us strength to continue the mission. Thanks for all you are doing to help us make disciples with your fantastic resources. Thank You!”
