What Sets Lumen Apart

Deep & Long-Lasting Christ-Centered Relationships

What sets Lumen apart is that it goes beyond the formal handshake and social event in which other organizations tend to specialize. Lumen focuses on forming life-long virtuous friendships oriented toward strengthening close-knit relationships with each other and, most importantly, with Christ.

All Areas of Life

Lumen Chaplains, consecrated women, and fellow members support and hold each other accountable in all areas of life – your career, your family, and your prayer life.
