Latvia is a small Eastern European country bordered by Estonia, Lithuania, Belarus and Russia. About 30% of the country is Catholic, but only 6% attend Sunday Mass. In the late 1990's, Renewal Ministries was invited to come to Latvia by the Effata Community and we have partnered with them ever since.
Our missions generally involve conducting two weekend conferences with teaching sessions and prayer ministry. During the week, the team travels to multiple cities to provide teaching and prayer ministry. In addition, Renewal Ministries provides teaching to seminarians and priests, at the invitation of the Archbishop.
In the last several years, we have worked closely with the men in Latvia through a growing Men's Ministry. In 2017, seventy-seven men participated in a camp-out weekend men's retreat with the teaching provided by Country Coordinator, Don Turbitt.
