Wendy Leigh, CEO of Franciscan Center, joined AM Tampa Bay to discuss the Franciscan Center is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
The Franciscan Center is an oasis for private reflection, retreats, spiritual direction, and hospitality, welcoming all people of all faiths.
It welcomes everyone with interfaith programs, retreats, workshops, prayer groups and 12-step programs, as well as trauma programs for first responders.
The Center has a 50-year history of providing community support through programs that promote mind, spirit and body wellness.
To celebrate the center's 50th anniversary, they are throwing a Words to Live By luncheon on March 25th, and nuns are traveling from all over the world to attend. (The nuns will be from Brazil, Bolivia, Jamaica, etc.)
The Franciscan Center is located on eight acres along the eastern banks of the Hillsborough River in the historic West Tampa neighborhood.
