Peace Retreat: A Justice Way of the Cross*
Friday, March 14 – Sunday, March 16
Br. Mark Schroeder, OFM
Franciscan Renewal Center, Scottsdale , AZ
We will be using the traditional Stations of the Cross as our template for exploring how these episodes of the suffering of Jesus might apply to the sufferings in our present world. For each station we will have time for prayerful reflection, links to Scripture, a bit of education about the related issue of injustice, and discussion of the steps of nonviolent action we might consider taking. The aim of this Lenten retreat is to be renewed in the gift of HOPE that comes to believers in the Resurrection of Christ.
*Core course for Nonviolence Leadership Certificate Program. You do not have to be enrolled in the Certificate Program to attend. Open to everyone.

Franciscans Help Mother Earth Heal Herself
Please view this video we just put on Youtube:
St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology, would be proud of his brothers in the Province of St. Barbara who transformed a polluted copper mine by helping Mother Earth heal herself– a reclamation of the Gibson Mine.
Franciscans for Justice is a joint project of the O.F.M. Franciscan Friars of the St. Barbara Province and the Our Lady of Guadalupe Province. Franciscan Friars are a Roman Catholic religious community called and committed to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the prophetic spirit of St. Francis of Assisi. We work with others to promote justice, peace and care for creation, in our times.
