    FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT St. Vincent Catholic Charities is proud to partner with the Michigan Catholic Conference for From Darkness to Light: Human Trafficking & Our Response. Human traf- ficking is a growing crime that violates the fundamental rights and the dignity of women, children and men.

    RETREAT FOR DIVORCED CATHOLICS February 10-12, 2017 at St. Francis Retreat Center in DeWitt. This warm and uplifting event is less about the daily details of your life–or the devastation of your di- vorce–than it is a special time to draw close to Our Lord. Drawing from the story of the Samaritan woman who en- counters Christ at Jacob’s well, this event recognizes that after divorce people are much more aware of the deep thirst that needs quenching … particularly in all their relationships. Included in the weekend is a fun wel- come and introduction, talks, helpful exercises, small group breakouts, quiet time for reflection, meals, a full- length movie, and more. The Sacrament of Reconcilia- tion will be available. To register, go to
