Veteran Retreat: The Journey Beyond Combat

This 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. We will gain further insights from contemporary authors: Joseph Campbell in The Hero's Journey and Harry Moody in Five Stages of the Soul.
Retreat team: Dr. Greg Massiello, Ph. D, trauma therapist, Iraq veteran and NY National Guard, Fr. Conrad Targonski, OFM, retired Marine Corps, and Rev. Bill Reese, Lutheran Minister and Vietnam veteran.

Thanks to a generous grant from DVNF, there is no cost to attend.
