From February 26 to March 1, 2024, the Province of St. Maximilian M. Kolbe in Brazil conducted its annual Provincial retreat.

The retreat is held in response to the Constitutions 46 §1, which require the friars to carry out at least five days of community retreat each year.
The retreat took place at the Cor Jesu Retreat Center in Brazil’s Federal District. Friar Moacir CASAGRANDE, OFM Cap., Minister Provincial of Central-West Brazil led the retreat. The reflections focused on fraternal life, Franciscan spirituality and the apostolate.
We pray to God for our confreres, for their vocations and for their perseverance as the year 2024 gets underway.
