Dear Brothers in Christ,
Our Lord said to his disciples “You are the light of the world” – Matthew 5:14.15.16
“You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it
under a bushel basket, but on the lamp stand, and gives it light to all in the house. In the same way, let
your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works, and give glory to your Father in
heaven”. Matthew 5: 14.15.16
The retreat team has selected this Scripture as the theme for our 32 nd Manhattan College Businessman’s
Reality Retreat which will be held at the beautiful Mt. Alvernia Retreat Center in Wappingers Falls, NY on
September 22, 23, 24th , 2023.
We invite you to come to this year’s Retreat ready to recharge your batteries, soak up the energy of
others, and shine your light for all to see. Please share this gift and bring your son, grandson, or a friend.
Our Retreat Mission is to inspire men to take responsibility for their spiritual lives and develop an
intimate relationship with Jesus. What better way to do that than to spend a weekend with fellow
Christ centered men listening to 5 inspiring speakers, having good conversations in breakout sessions,
during communal meals, or over late-night coffee, tea and cookies.
It is always a pleasure to reach out to all who visit our website to bring the news of our next retreat. I hope this letter can incite similar preparation and anticipation for another spirit filled gathering in September.
May God bless you and your loved ones,
Live Jesus in our hearts forever,
Peter Monaco, CE
