Fostering the healing ministry of Christ
Winter is a natural time for reflection. The holiday excitement is over, so we ponder what God is preparing next. As we move inward, we make ready for the possibility of new growth – the renewal that comes with spring.
Now is the time to shed what we cling to and make space for what will be new. All transformation begins with the necessity of being emptied. We turn to fasting, prayer and almsgiving to prepare for what the future may hold.
Saint Luke Institute is a place of renewal for priests, brothers, and women religious. Here, they learn to fast from former ways of thinking and behaving in preparation for what God desires them to become. We facilitate these changes in the healing ministry of Christ by providing mental health treatment, education, and wellness programs.
As we hold you in prayer in gratitude for the offerings you pledge to us, please remember Saint Luke Institute and the men and women we serve who have sacrificed so much to minister to us.
Rev. James E. Garvey, O. Praem.
“But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you may not appear to be fasting, except to your Father who is hidden. And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.”
