spiritual life

Many of those who come to us are hurting spiritually. Our spiritual formation team works closely with the clinical staff to integrate spirituality with the rest of recovery, and to help residents deepen their spiritual life and relationship with God.

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.

Spiritual Integration

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.
