We invite you to join us as we listen to keynote speaker Rev. John Dear, an international voice for peace and nonviolence, a priest, pastor, retreat leader and author. Together, we will discuss and renew our own life mission, and how we are sent into the world of violence and war to transform our culture into one of peace and nonviolence.
The event is scheduled for October 15, 2016, Watertown, SD at County Fair Banquet Hall, 14 Second Street Northeast from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Cost is $25, college or high school students only $10, which includes lunch and breaks.
