We invite you to attend our Holy Spirit Men’s Retreat that will be held at the serenely beautiful Lumen Christi Retreat Center located at 100 Lumen Christi Court, Schriever, LA 70395, on August 19-21, 2016. Father Bo Majors and Mark Nimo will be the main celebrant and keynote speakers.
THEME: “Take the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God” (Eph. 6: 17). St. Paul urges us to use the Holy Scriptures like a sword to fight the good fight of faith against the evil spirits who “roam through the world seeking the ruin of souls.” Men need to know that the word of God is our word of life and word of truth. This retreat will uplift and inspire us to remain fully armed with the sword of the Spirit.

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.
