This retreat for all veterans and active duty service members is designed to offer healing insights from one of the most beloved saints: St. Francis of Assisi, who was himself a prisoner of war. Participants will examine the challenges confronting veterans in light of the life of a saint who rose out of the ashes of combat to become an icon of peace. We will gain further insights from contemporary authors: Joseph Campbell in The Hero's Journey and Harry Moody in Five Stages of the Soul.
Retreat team: Dr. Greg Masiello, Ph. D, trauma therapist; Fr. Conrad Targonski, OFM, retired Marine Corps chaplain; and Rev. Bill Reese, Lutheran minister and Vietnam veteran.
Cost: $190; Commuter: $120. Scholarships available. Deadline for registration: October 21st.
