Pax Christi Florida will be holding its annual Spring Retreat on April 14-15 in Parrish, Florida. The retreat is entitled, Awaken to the Earth as Sacrament: Restore Your Inner Peace, and is being billed as “a weekend of inspiration, celebration, and sabbath rest.” The retreat will be led by Sr. Paul Gonzalez. John X. and Martina Linnehan are doing the pre-retreat workshop on living sustainably, and Fran Palmeri–noted naturalist and photographer–will be doing a presentation entitled “Our Florida”. Additionally there will be a presentation on the desirability of buying local for nutritional and economic reasons followed by the opportunity to buy fresh produce.
PCF will also be giving thanks for its 30 years of Peacemaking and will be marking it at the retreat with a special prayer service and the taking/renewal of the Vow of Nonviolence.
