Worldwide Featured Ministries: Nigeria

After twenty yeasrs in 21 dioceses in Nigeria, RENEW International concluded its ministry in this country. The spiritual impact on individual lives is nearly impossible to measure. Some notable lasting effects of RENEW are the establishment of the RENEW School of Evangelization in the Archdiocese of Ibadan and the formation of a new religious order, the Sisters of the Beatitudes, in the Diocese of Kafanchan, whose charism is to promote the reign of God by living and helping others to live the Beatitudes. To this end, they are focused in promoting faith sharing in small Christian communities.

The awakening of faith fostered by the RENEW experience continues to live on as the RENEW Prayer is prayed at every Mass in every parish everyday in many dioceses. Faith sharing will be nurtured by lectionary resources that have been inculturated and translated into local languages.
