Light of the World Retreat

Light Of the World is a powerful evangelization process. Answering the call of John Paul II for a “new evangelization,” LOTW provides a dynamic vehicle for spreading the Good News and bringing souls (closer) to Christ. The LOTW Process reaches out to all - from the beginning "seeker" to those well along their faith journey. As LOTW evangelizes, it also empowers each evangelized person to evangelize others.

Light of the World Retreat Prayer

Jesus Christ,
Light of the World,
shine your favor on our faith community,
and grant your many blessings
on those preparing for the upcoming
Light of the World parish retreat.

O Holy Spirit of God,
tame the ever increasing demands
on our time and attention
so that we might hear
God’s gentle voice of Love
speaking to our hearts.
Shield our minds and hearts from the darkness,
and lead us into the Light of Christ.
Keep our hearts open to His calling,
and grant a deep Spiritual Richness
to all attending the retreat.


Rekindle the Flame Retreat - October 5, 2013

On Saturday, October 5, 2013, people from across the Archdiocese gathered at beautiful Prairie Star Ranch in Williamsburg, Kansas, for a day filled with prayer, praise, inspiration, and friendship. The event was the" Rekindle the Flame Retreat", a followup to the Light of the World Retreats that have taken place throughout the Archdiocese during the past three years. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with those who had made the weekend long retreat in the past and to remind us all of the lessons of faith that were so much a part of those retreats. Fr. Andrew Strobl, Fr. Mark Mertes, Fr. Jerry Volz, and Mrs. Vickie Broxterman were the speakers throughout the day, and Fr. Tom Aduri was there to celebrate Mass and bring the day to a close.

The next Light of the World Retreat to be held here at St. Matthew will be February 21-23, 2014. If you have never attended one of these retreat experiences, watch the Sunday Bulletin for your opportunity to register.
