An essential part of the Franciscan family is located right down the street from FAN offices in Washington, DC. That is the Franciscan Mission Service (FMS). The engaging people at FMS prepare and support lay Catholics for different lengths of mission service opportunities in solidarity with impoverished and marginalized communities across the globe.
As part of Formation, the missioners-in-training also spend some time getting to know other members of the Franciscan family. Our own Sr. Marie Lucey, Director of Advocacy and Member Relations was asked to spend time this week with the new Missioners and spoke with them about the Two Feet of Social Teaching.
We invite you to read this reflection by Missioner-in-training Allison Dethlefs.
