When: Wednesday, April 4 — Good Friday, April 6, 2012

Where: St. Stephen and the Incarnation Church, 1525 Newton St. NW, Washington, DC 20010 (corner of 16th St. and Newton)

What: As we enter into Holy Week to commemorate the Last Supper, arrest, torture, trial and crucifixion of Jesus, please join in a time of prayer, reflection, community building and acts of nonviolent resistance focusing on the theme:“PUT AWAY THE SWORD; FOLLOW JESUS IN NONVIOLENT REVOLUTION.”

We will begin the retreat on April 4 (the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.,) with a 6:00 p.m. dinner followed by a talk by Cathy Breen, from the Maryhouse Catholic Worker in NYC, about her recent visits to Syria and the Middle East. The retreat, which will include time for communal reflection and engaging in several nonviolent actions, will conclude on Good Friday following a noon-time nonviolent witness at the White House.

The retreat is sponsored by Jonah House and the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker.
