2019 has been a year of new beginnings for Franciscan Peacemakers. Quick Recap:
MARCH: We moved into 3333 W. Lisbon and started up regular production there right away.
APRIL: Painted the whole shop with the assistance of many people, including Kohl’s Cares volunteers!
JUNE: New equipment arrived (see photo above left) and soap shop starts shaping up (with production happening all the while).
AUGUST: Hospitality Center opens (see photo above right of just one part of the beautifully designed space, courtesy of our faithful volunteer Lori Didier and Inspired Home Furnishings in the Third Ward.
OCTOBER: LOTS OF CELEBRATING! First – our anniversary event celebrating our very own Deacon Steve’s 25th Anniversary of Ordination on the eve of the Feast of St. Francis. Thanks to all who contributed and attended this special event! BUT THERE’S MORE…
OCTOBER 26 – Join us for the Grand Opening of Franciscan Peacemakers at 3333 W. Lisbon! We will be cutting the ribbon on our Retail Store at NOON and the shop will be open for tours of the production space and Hospitality Center. And the store will officially be open for business until 4 PM. You’ve gotta smell it to believe it!
Please join us!! Until then – peace and all good from our new home on Lisbon!
