Fr. Gene Lutz, CSV ministered at Villa Desiderata in McHenry, IL for 31 years (1965-1996).  He was the Villa’s first retreat director.  Recently the Villa donated his hand-tooled riding saddle to BraveHearts  in his memory.

BraveHearts, located in Harvard, IL, provides equine-assisted activities and therapies to children, adults, military veterans and their families.  Their vision is to bring hope, joy and unlimited possibilities through the healing power of the horse.
