Canticle Campus Classes

Canticle Campus is a joint effort within the Franciscan family, both Catholic and Protestant, to establish a central location of education and dialog. Our goal is to establish an online college where knowledge, understanding, and dialog in civility, tolerance and religious freedom (in the spirit of Francis and Clare of Assisi) are primary.

Franciscans Applaud US Senators for Passage of Immigration Bill

WASHINGTON, DC— Franciscan Action Network (FAN) applauds the bipartisan vote on the Senate immigration bill, S. 744. Although the bill is far more stringent on border security than FAN and other advocates had worked for, it retains an earned path to citizenship for several million immigrants, the DREAM Act, some favorable family provisions and protections for workers, refugees and asylum seekers. FAN commends the hard work of the bi-partisan Gang of 8 to produce a final Senate bill and thanks the 68 Senators who voted for it, especially those who took a significant risk in voting Aye.
