Invitation from Holy Name Province:
Retreat for Nonviolence and Peacemaking
JOIN US for a short online retreat for nonviolence and peacemaking. In this retreat we will use a video from Pax Christi International to reflect on what is nonviolence, how we can live it, and reflect with others what action we might start to discern for our ministries to live this out in our world. The need for nonviolence is glaring as we continue to have shootings in our streets, domestic violence continues to rise in homes, the political rhetoric of our civic conversations often is founded in violence, and war is a constant in our world. Franciscan ministries are needed more than ever to help ourselves and others live into the greeting upon which we are known, Peace and All Good.
There are three options for the retreat. Each of which will be one hour. Please consider joining us and sharing this invitation with others. We are asking that people register for the retreat time that is best for them as it will help us plan and use our time more effectively.
Let’s continue our work for nonviolence together. Please share with others.
In the Hope of Peace,
Russell Testa, JPIC Animator
