Luke 18 is a weekend retreat for 8th Graders. The retreat helps bring 8th graders to a better understanding of who they are and how they fit in to the Catholic Church. It also helps to develop and maintain their relationships to God.

The weekend includes fun and games, sharing, and a series of talks given by the High Schoolers. The talks focus on how we have a God who has a plan for each of us, and how He is present at all times and in all situations. Each talk will include personal testimonies from our High Schoolers. After each talk, the 8th graders [Lukers] will have time in a small group to discuss how it affects his/her own life. The weekend also includes the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Mass, and Praise and Worship Adoration.

8th Graders who have gone through this retreat have stated that, ‘it is truly life-changing’.
