Wednesday evening, October 28th saw a truly inspiring group of Franciscan and Franciscan-hearted friends and supporters gather for prayer, music, reflection, and fun!
While we missed being able to gather in person, our virtual event was the best attended we have experienced thanks to YOU. Over 170 people gathered for prayerful solidarity and heard passionate speakers who shared how brightly the flame burns in living the Gospel with courage and integrity. We heard five diverse pieces of music, from choral to hip-hop, that lifted our spirits in ways beyond just words. We were joined by such inspiring Franciscans throughout the evening– Bishop John Stowe, OFM, Conv., Sr. Joan Brown OSF, Sr. Jannette Pruitt, OSF, Marie Dennis, OFS, Archbishop Roberto González Nieves, OFM and our keynote speaker, Sr. Ilia Delio, OSF. The passion to work together to build God’s Kingdom here and now shown through.
