Dear Pastors, All Faithful, LUC Members and Friends:
In this Year of Faith, the League of Ukrainian Catholics, continues its religious purpose, to promote personal sanctification and it invites all parishioners, families, friends and anyone looking to spend time in prayer during the Great Fast, to come and participate in this our Annual Lenten Retreat scheduled for the week end of March 15, 16, 17, 2013 being held at St. Mary’s Villa Retreat and Education Center, Sloatsburg, NY.
This year the theme being presented is “Journey of Bread – Transformed and Deified”. Take a kernel of corn or any single grain in your hand. Imagine the phenomenal difference between this and a field ready for harvest. It’s just a shadow of how Our Lord Jesus, through the Heavenly King, desires to transform, yes divinize us in His Holy Mysteries. We will embark on that journey of divinization during this retreat. Glorify God. This retreat is open to anyone who feels the need to spend some time away from their everyday activity in prayer and reflection.
