"How can I put this [Light of the World Retreat] experience into words? It is a feeling of being loved, accepted, and transformed. The light of the Holy Spirit has ignited my soul, my mind, and my heart. Our Lord Jesus now leads me in ways that everything is clear to me, no doubts and no fear. I am complete because Jesus completes me."
"The fruits born by the Holy Spirit [from the Light of the World Retreat] in souls that are open to His power and His presence are amazing... It has been amazing to see such tangible and immediate fruit. I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store next!"
"Light of the World has started to provide people a connection to smaller communities within the larger parish community. Those relationships are vital to being a community of people who are truly connected to one another in ways that encourage, challenge and support each other as we work to help the Church accomplish her mission in our community."
At a recent meeting of my parish’s leadership team I asked the question, “What has been the most effective means of making disciples in our parish?” Without hesitation the response was, “Light of the World.” Over the last five years we have hosted eleven retreats for nearly 300 people, and I have witnessed real conversion in individuals as well as in the parish itself. Since beginning of Light of the World, enrollment in the parish has increased, as well as the weekly offertory collection and the number of ministries we serve. But the real proof of the effectiveness of Light of the World is parishioners’ increased level of engagement in the life of faith, their insatiable desire for deeper knowledge of God, and a determination to share their faith with others. Light of the World has led hundreds of parishioners in my parish to a new encounter with Jesus Christ, and through that encounter, has transformed them into the evangelizers we need."
