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.

What is the Purpose In Your Life?


  • Ever wonder what you are living your life for?
  • What gives your life meaning and purpose?
  • Can you really know God's plan for your life?


If you have asked yourself these and other similar questions, the "Good News" message of the Gospel is that you are not alone!  These are the questions of our hearts and souls and the Light of the World process seeks to answer them within your own parish.
