Latvia is a small Eastern European country bordered by Estonia, Lithuania, Belarus, and Russia. About thirty percent of the country is Catholic, but only six percent attend Sunday Mass. In the late 1990s, 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 also have worked closely with the men in Latvia through a growing men’s ministry.

Latest Field Report

Latvia Field Report 2015

“The most effective groups in Lativa are the men’s group in Riga and the Effata Community in Riga. I taught and ministered at the Effata Community my first night. There were 130 in attendance and eighty percent of them were women.”
