Spiritual Life at Saint Luke Institute
The Eucharist is the heart of our house. In our chapel, we celebrate daily Mass, hold Holy Hours, spend time in quiet prayer, welcome new residents and celebrate the recovery of those returning home at their commissioning ceremonies.
We offer regular access to the Sacrament of Reconciliation with an extern confessor. Every two months, a Day of Reflection is held at a retreat center, with an outside speaker to help clients reconnect with a loving, forgiving God in the spirit of recovery.
The spiritual formation staff works closely with the clinical staff to ensure the integration of a person's spirituality with their psychological wellness.
An important part of our treatment is the integration of a person's spiritual and psychological wellness.
Individual spiritual counseling is offered biweekly for all residential clients, allowing clients to integrate therapeutic issues and experiences of God to develop a more explicit and personal relationship with God.
Men’s Spirituality Group
The focus is on sharing personal experiences of prayer with specific scripture passages and integration of new learning gleaned from a relationship with God, others and self, as well as the implications for pastoral ministry.
Women’s Prayer and Recovery Group
This group is designed to integrate a woman's spirituality into the therapeutic process by means of prayer, reflection, writing, and sharing aspects of one’s spiritual journey.
