We invite you to attend our Catholic Charismatic Renewal of New Orleans Healing Retreat for Men and Women that will be held at the serenely beautiful Lumen Christi Retreat Center located at 100 Lumen Christi Court, Schriever, LA 70395, on Sept. 20-22, 2019. Father Bill Henry will be the main celebrant and Jim Murphy will be the keynote speaker.
Theme: Holiness and Wholeness
St. Paul’s prayer for the Thessalonians is: “May the God of peace himself sanctify you completely; and may your spirit, soul, and body be preserved entirely blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thess. 5:23). In the gospels, Jesus ministered to those who needed healing in spirit, mind and body. So the Holy Spirit today also brings holiness, healing and wholeness to the entire person. Come experience this total action of the Holy Spirit on this retreat through the ministry of Jim Murphy and Fr. Bill Henry.

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.
