Lumen Christi, that opened in 1985, is the name and the theme of the Retreat complex which means “The Light of Christ.” The complex is situated on 50 acres, consists of a main retreat facility for adults, Pere Menard Building, and a youth and group retreat facility, Souby Building. The complex is well named because of the natural lighting in the corridors, chapel, library and dining areas. The corridors and private rooms display over 100 oil paintings on local topics by local artists. An outdoor Way of the Cross portrays in a moving way, the passion and death of Jesus. The beauty of the Louisiana landscape reflects the brilliance of Christ, the CENTER and the MEANING of all creation.
