Our fraternity goal for 2021 is to:
"Develop a program to expose our communities to the Franciscan way of life, while every member of our fraternity commits to daily contemplation of the Gospel."
Our SPECIAL GUEST at our May 23rd gathering was Brother David Buer, OFM who described his ministry at the US / Mexico border. Enjoy this video of his presentation. Please also watch the short video of Brother Joe in Nicaragua. He, Brother David, and others are participating in a fast with the prayerful intention of increasing compassion among US citizens toward migrants coming to the US.
Good Friday, 2021
