A great time at Penn Station

March 15th, 2019 by
7 of us, Paul, Whitney, Zeke, Rick, Arnaud, Derek and Pierre met at 11:30. We walked around the station and met Michael, Jehovah, Marie, Mildred, and Lamar. We invited them for a lunch in the station’s food hall, where we enjoyed Kentucky Fried Chicken and Taco Bell. It took time for Michael to feel comfortable with our invitation. He doesn’t have many teeth left and had to ask for a soup instead. Pierre took him to Pret to get one, and the two of them met there Mary, a tourist from Dallas, discovering New York for the first time and intrigued to see Pierre and Michael having fun and hugging each other. See some pictures of this blessed time below. Jehovah is a fan of the Blues Brothers and used to play the saxophone, Mildred is expecting a baby boy and proudly called Lamar her soon-to-be husband, Marie prefers crispy chicken sandwiches to pieces of chicken, we’ll know it for next time. See some pictures of this blessed time below, and let us know if you want to join next time, the list is building up already, we’ll be sold out soon.

Lumen National Summit

October 2nd, 2018 by

The Lumen Institute held our annual National Summit in NYC at the University Club over the weekend of Oct 14th-16th.  Over 80 individuals attended and included members, spouses, LC Chaplains and Consecrated women. Every Chapter was represented and by all accounts it was a big success. One of the highlights was Mass on Sunday morning at St Patrick’s Cathedral with Cardinal Dolan assisted by 7 of our LC priests. Beyond the development of friendships and camaraderie there were reflections and testimonials from outside speakers, Lumen members and the Chaplains. Jim Hislop and Fr. Mark Haydu gave an update on the many activities, growth and successes throughout the Lumen Chapters over the last year. The overarching theme was “All in”  with our faith and the need to be joyful with our talents and treasures. There was also free time for social and cultural activities that included the high in demand Metropolitan Museum of Art Tour hosted by Steve and Evelyn Auth, Broadway plays, the 9/11 museum and the Metropolitan Museum. The feedback was adamant that we do this event in NYC again next year and we have tentatively scheduled the weekend of Oct. 4th-6th in 2019. We hope to have an even bigger group next year
