esterday’s announcement from the Korean Summit of an agreement between the United States and North Korea to denuclearize and end military exercises came as a good news to the Franciscan Action Network (FAN).
FAN was one of several Catholic social advocacy groups to sign on to a letter to the Senate urging they oppose the nomination of Gina Haspel to be CIA Director. Read more here.
Saint Francis is attributed with saying, “Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
How time flies! Ten years ago about 150 Franciscans and Franciscan hearted people gathered in Baltimore for a meeting which resulted in the creation of the Franciscan Action Network (FAN). FAN was commissioned to present a unified Franciscan voice for peace and justice in Washington, D.C. Since the early days, FAN has grown into a well-respected organization. Watch & share this video of some of our accomplishments.
Many FAN members and friends attended March for Our Lives Rallies all over the country on Saturday, March 24, 2018
FAN was invited to be part of a forum and symposium to discuss greater coordination and collaboration on caring for our common home.
