CCRSC Minutes: Introduction

This file contains the minutes of the CCRSC, the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Service Committee, the body that originally led the Catholic Charismatic Renewal. The CCRSC began in 1970. It established itself as the National Service Committee of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal of the United States in May 1976. This was a response to the invitation from Cardinal Suenens to move the International Communications Office to Brussels to work with him in developing the international charismatic renewal. When changing its nature to the National Service Committee, it commissioned the International Communications Office to develop an international structure and made it autonomous until an international structure would be set up (see the May 1976 minutes). The minutes of the CCRSC, therefore, go from 1970 to 1976.

These minutes can be found in a file in the CCR History Archives of the Sword of the Spirit. These seem to be a complete set of minutes. The very first meeting does not seem to have left a set of minutes. There are many other documents relative to the history of the early CCR and the CCRSC in the archives.

This set of materials also contains the original governing documents of Charismatic Renewal Services, the main executive organ of the CCRSC, and the documents relating to the Advisory Committee of the CCRSC.

These documents are digitalized versions of the documents in the archives, as is apparent from their appearance.

The numbers on each document are not on the original documents in the archives. They were added to make it easier to find the documents.
