The CLP has two basic purposes: evangelism and spiritual renewal.
To evangelize is to take the basic message of Christianity and to proclaim it anew so that those who hear it can make a renewed commitment to the Lord in a way which will allow them to receive a fuller experience of the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
- For the individual: to bring 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.
- For the family: to bring people to a renewed commitment to Christian family life, thereby building up a community of committed Christian families.
- For the Church: to bring people within a particular parish to a fuller experience of life in the Spirit, thereby strengthening and revitalizing community life in the parish.
