We-Awareness Series: Franciscan Peacemakers

February 24, 2020 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Beginning January 23, 2020 Firstfruits will be offering interactive retreat days in solidarity with the marginalized in our community.

All are broken in some way. That brokenness is what we all have in common. In community we can seek to provide an avenue for the Holy Sprit to create Oneness and empowering compassion.

The day begins at 9:00am and ends at noon. It includes a presentation, dialogue, and optional lunch.

Our February event highlights Franciscan Peacemakers. We welcome Sherry Roder and women from the Franciscan Peacemakers family.

There is no cost for the day but we ask for a freewill offering to benefit the organization highlighted.

When we connect marginalized people
with mainstreamed people of faith
it results in mutual transformation
and mutual holiness.
