LCI alumni and friends gathered for a reunion and retreat August 6-9 at the Kartause, in conjunction with Franciscan University’s alumni reunion commemorating the 25 th Anniversary of the Austrian Program. Fr. Joseph Veresh (LCI ’96) gave talks on the parables in Scripture which show us the merciful love of the Lord, and everyone participated in Mass and other activities. Highlights of the long weekend included a walking pilgrimage to Mariazell and a Kartause community barbecue dinner with all the families, alumni, and visitors.
