What is the Light of the World Retreat?

LOTW is a parish-based retreat presented by parishioners and clergy.  This is intended for both men and women over the age of 18.  This experience brings the light of the Gospel alive within and our parish through a living encounter with Jesus Christ.  Attending a Light of the World retreat is a wonderful opportunity to enhance and enrich your faith with those you see at Mass as well as parishioner you have yet to meet.
