FAN Signs on to Letter Thanking Pope Francis

The Franciscan Action Network signed on to a letter composed by members of the Washington Interfaith Staff Committee (WISC) thanking Pope Francis for his "clarity of vision" in the encyclical, "Laudato Si." The letter describes the WISC communities efforts to educate and advocate for those marginalized by our society, how we collaborate with each other in the daily meetings with U.S. Policy makers and how we work together on strategies common to all our organizations.

The letter ends with a warm welcome as we anticipate the Holy Father's visit in September.

The staff of FAN is happy to report the success of our Second Annual Cardinal McCarrick Award event November 5th.

St. Francis Hall was twinkling with lights and there was great conversation all around the room from participants who were eager to support and uplift Rev. Fletcher Harper for all the great work he has done. FAN looks forward to a continued long relationship with Rev. Harper and his organizations, GreenFaith and OurVoices.
