Journey Beyond Combat @ St. Francis Spirituality Center
Nov 3 – Nov 5 all-day

The St. Francis Spirituality Center will host Journey Beyond Combat, a healing retreat for veterans and active military members, from Nov. 3-5.

The Journey Beyond Combat, a retreat for all veterans and active duty service members, is designed to offer healing insights from one of the most beloved saints: St. Francis of Assisi, who was himself a prisoner of war. Participants will examine the challenges confronting veterans in light of the life of a saint who rose out of the ashes of combat to become an icon of peace.
