Midweek Mixed Retreat: “In the Footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi”

September 26, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - September 28, 2023 @ 1:00 pm


Join us midweek for a retreat open to all at Capuchin Retreat.

Our theme for the 2023-24 season is: “In the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi.” By delving into our Franciscan tradition, we will unravel the life of St. Francis and explore key events in his conversion and ministry. Through his life, the weekend retreat will be an opportunity to know St. Francis more deeply and to recognize those opportunities of grace in your own life…deepening your awareness of God’s loving presence and embracing the Gospel with evermore joy.

The total cost of the retreat is $250
