What are the goals of the CLP?

  1. For the individual, it brings a person into a stronger rela­tionship with God by discovering and living more fully the power and gifts he or she received through the Holy Spirit.
  2. For the family, it brings married couples to a renewed commit­ment to Christian family Life and it starts to build up a commu­nity of committed Christian families.
  3. For the Church, it brings people within a particular parish to a fuller experience of life in the Spirit.  Consequently, it strengthens and revitalizes community life in the parish.
