We hope you will save the date for our annual award celebration, where we will continue to celebrate our 10th Anniversary, while honoring three immigration advocacy partners.
We hope you can join us at our annual award benefit this year honoring three partner organizations whose tireless work on immigration issues demmonstrates their Franciscan hearts.
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.
On this feast day of our patron, St. Francis, we invite you to watch a Transitus refection video our Associate Director, Sr. Marie Lucey gave at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land.
This short video made by university students in Syracuse gives the viewer a synopsis of the Franciscan Earth Corps and it's goals.
