Franciscan Action Network is proud to announce a new young adult retreat titled "The Francis Effect."

Developed and lead by Franciscan Earth Corps Director, Rhett Engelking, the goal of this retreat is to analyze the example of St Francis, as well as the words and actions so far of Pope Francis. After 14 months, he has been re-energizing the young Church, attracting the attention of non-Catholics, and calling us all (regardless of religion) to action! So in our analysis, we hope to hear God's call a little clearer in our lives and what it is that He is asking of us. We will achieve these goals through discussions, activities, prayer, and fellowship.

The Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida was first to host the retreat. Feedback from participants so far has been very positive. If you would like more information on hosting a retreat in your area, please let us know at info@franciscanaction.org.
