Light of the World

LOTW logo

St. Charles Borromeo Parish has been hosting Light of the World (LOTW) retreats for the past several years.  These retreats, which take place each Spring during the Lenten season, give participants a weekend to spend some time with God; to discern what is God's role in their life and how they can best live what is His will for them.  The retreat is divided into themes with small group discussions and is presented by our priest and fellow parishioners. 

Our retreats take place on a Friday night, all day Saturday and Sunday and wrap up with a Monday night session.  All food and drink is provided for you and there is no charge for the retreat.  Men and women participate together and retreatants go home to sleep each evening.  Click here to see the participants of 2011's retreat!
