FAN is pleased to announce a weekend for Earth Corps Chapter leaders nationwide to come to DC for a hands-on training conference. We invite you to come activate your faith and experience Franciscan Spirituality during the Feast of St. Francis while gaining valuable leadership experience and meeting other leaders from around the country. Share ideas, gather the tools needed and learn ways to boost membership at this intensive training.
We are thrilled to announce that Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, author of Eager To Love: The Alternative Way of St. Francis has agreed to join us by teleconference during the weekend to discuss the uniqueness of the Franciscan approach to life and answer questions from the attendees.
The weekend is scheduled for October 3rd - 5th, with the option of arriving October 2nd. Please let us know as soon as possible if you plan on attending so we can arrange low cost housing for everyone. The events will be held at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America (myfranciscan.org), which is where the FAN offices are located. This retreat-like setting will offer a peaceful, contemplative backdrop to the weekend.
We encourage you to pray about it and make the time for yourself, so you can be a better leader to your chapter upon your return.
Please register online here or if you prefer, you can print out the Registration Form below and mail it to us at the address listed at the bottom of the form.
Peace and All good
Director of Franciscan Earth Corps
