Light of the World
Light of the World encourages small faith community evangelization in our parishes. The process starts with a retreat to enhance and deepen a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Whether just beginning to seek Christ or already having a relationship with Him, this dynamic retreat is designed to evoke the Holy Spirit and empower the spread of the Love of Christ in each participant and in the parish communities. We have Small Faith Communities that meet in parishioners homes where we support one another through prayer and study. Everyone is encouraged to attend a retreat and join in a Small Faith Community.
