The "Center" podcast

Welcome to The "Center”, a twice-monthly podcast series created and produced by the Franciscan Peace Center - a ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis, Clinton, IA.


The podcast is focused on the joint mission of both organizations to promote peace and active nonviolence within our local, national, and global communities. Join host Marsha Thrall on the second and fourth Thursday of each month as we explore how active nonviolence and peacemaking are necessary and transformative practices within everyday life.
