A Sad Announcement:
The People of Hope was recently approved as private
association of the faithful
This "new day" for the People of Hope is
a constant reminder
Renewal Resources is an organization that provides retreats and weekends, primarily to Catholics, to identify possible recruits to the People of Hope. It is no more than a front organization for recruitment. Individuals staffing these retreats are members of the People of Hope religious cult. The following schedule is taken from Renewal Resources flier. This flier was also accompanied by a letter written from the Director of Renewal Resources. The director of this "ministry" is also a Coordinator of the People of Hope cult. Although the letter is not printed here, it gives the allusion that it a Catholic organization. This is particularly evident in the insinuation that in 1997 Pope John Paul II designated that year was the year of Jesus. The Pope has declared 1998 as the year of the Holy Spirit (so Renewal Resources picks up on that theme).
The letter highlights places where Renewal Resources was at work during 1997. See if maybe you attended one of these functions:
Of course, there's a little note that you could buy the tapes to the last event.
Other retreats identified on the flier include:
The letter states that Leonardo Difilippis will be putting together a one man show on the life of St. Francis.
There is an appeal in the letter for money. Donors would be wise to consider exactly where their money will be spent. Remember the Director of Renewal Resources is a Coordinator of the People of Hope. Is, if any, Renewal Resources money being diverted to the People of Hope directly or indirectly? While many of the programs are certainly based on noble themes, what has been the success of HOPE in raising families. We find many children flee the community once they become of legal age. Finally, I found a retreat in Florida to be very interesting. The Brotherhood of HOPE (formerly the community's "brotherhood" for single men) has a settlement in Florida. While New Jersey and Pennsylvania and parts of New York are no longer fertile ground for recruitment, one can see movement into the New England states.
THEY ARE NOT UNDER THE DIRECTION
