About Divine Renovation Ministry
Divine Renovation Ministry inspires, connects, and equips Catholic parishes around the world to become missional. Our vision is that every Catholic parish in the world is missional and equipped to reach the unchurched and de-churched. Through our lived experience of parish renewal, we have discovered the three keys of this Divine Renovation: the power of the Holy Spirit, the best of leadership principles, and the primacy of evangelization.
We are based in Nova Scotia, Canada and work globally, with incorporated offices in the USA, Australasia, and the UK along with a dedicated branch for Canada (operated from the global office) and emerging partnerships in Germany and Ireland. Together, we refer to these offices, branches and partnerships as the Divine Renovation Global network.
Divine Renovation is funded through large and major gifts, grants, and individual monthly and annual gifts. While relatively young, our ministry has been graced with strong donor support -our revenues have grown ten-fold since 2017 - to facilitate our significant experienced and planned growth.
