St. Francis Retreat House
The Retreat Team at St. Francis Retreat House wants to be of service to the people of our area in their search for God, for fulfillment and peace. One way to describe this mission is with the words of St. Francis of Assisi: “we are called to heal wounds, to bind what is broken, and to bring home those who are lost.” Please help us know your concerns and interests as we plan for the coming years of retreat ministry. Our theme for this coming year (2017) is “ACCEPTING OUR HUMANITY, BUILDING FRIENDSHIPS, and CELEBRATING LIFE.” The topics listed below speak to this theme.

Which topics/themes listed below would you find helpful for accepting the life God has given you and celebrating that life in serenity and joy? Please mark the topics that would interest you for a GROUP DISCUSSION. List your choices in order of your preferences, that is, by indicating with numbers 1 through 5 how helpful they might be for you.
