Join Us As We Celebrate 10 Years of the Franciscan Action Network

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.
