I am very grateful to St. Luke Institute for the support and healing provided to priests, religious, and seminarians, both in preventive care and in addressing specific crises and challenges. St. Luke’s outreach and presence in our Archdiocese is greatly valued, not only by us but also by neighboring dioceses.
