Faith Forum is offered on

MEN'S RETREAT GROUP — At
the beginning of each November, a group of men from Saint Luke Parish
travels to the Passionist Fathers' Holy Family Retreat House in West
Hartford for a weekend retreat. This dedicated band of retreatants,
including both married and single, says that there's no better way
to grow in appreciation for your relationship with the Lord and with
others and for your vocation as a Catholic layman in today's world.
If you're a husband, father or grandfather (who typically pass this
wonderful practice of an annual retreat on to their sons and
grandsons!), you'll also find nourishment for your family vocation.
Sound good? Call Finn Charlesworth at 226-3226 for more

News and Events page during the month of October.
