We look around and see the violence of the world and our soul longs for peace. We feel powerless hearing the cries of the hungry, the sick and the dying and our hearts ache for peace. We cannot work for peace in our world and ignore the discontent in our own hearts and souls. Franciscan Peacemakers offers half day or full day retreats for people seeking to find peace in their own lives. The groups can be anywhere from 2-10 people. We offer these retreats at our offices located at St. Martin de Porres Catholic Church, 128 W. Burleigh Street Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We can also come to you. Come explore your longing for inner peace. Come and spend some time with Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi. Come and let your soul find peace.
