The Casa Veterans Ministry at the Franciscan Renewal is recognized in the Valley for providing healing programs to U.S. Service Members and Veterans.
We are pleased to announce the return of our wonderful “St. Francis: Journey of a Resilient Warrior Retreat” which will be held February 9-11, 2024 at the Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale, AZ. The retreat will be led by Fr. Conrad Targonski OFM, CAPT, CHC, USN (ret.), Greg Masiello, Ph.D., and Rev. Dr. William Reese, D. Min, Th.D., and examine the healing insights of St. Francis of Assisi, a soldier and prisoner of war in the 13the century.
If you are a Service Member or Veteran, come join Fr. Conrad, Greg and Bill as they examine the hardships and challenges faced by St. Francis of Assisi and untangle the paradox of his life, exploring how the call of the warrior intersects with the call of spirituality. Over 150 Arizona veterans have benefitted from this retreat since 2015.
The retreat is FREE of charge. For more information, or contact Linda MacLeish at email@example.com.
