LOTW C FinalEver wonder what you are living your life for?  What gives your life meaning and purpose?  Can you really know God's plan for your life?  If you have asked yourself these and other similar questions, the "Good News" message of the Gospel is that you are not alone.  These are the questions of our hearts and souls and the Light of the World Process seeks to answer them.

Our next Light of the World Retreat begins on Friday, November 3rd..
