Each year, the men of St. Francis go on retreat together. This year's retreat took place at beautiful St. Meinrad Archabbey. Our speaker was Jared Jones and our theme was "The Beta Man of God: Weakness and the Theology of the Cross." The cost was $125 (golfing/shooting was not included). Look below for a glimpse of what the Men's Retreat weekend looked like!
