The Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCR) movement in mainland China, which appeared independently in 1994, has spread slowly during the last two decades. CCR communities have become part of church growth; they are supervised by a local bishop or priests, and contribute to the revival of diocesan life. Most CCR members actively participate in the local parish’s ministry and become more diligent in observing the church’s traditional rituals or devotions, such as adoration of the Eucharist, the stations of the cross, the rosary, and vespers. They emphasize the role of speaking in tongues as an alternative spiritual exercise, along with other exercises like training seminars, regular prayer meetings, and group Bible studies.
