Who in the world would want to drink a cup of dirty water? I wouldn't. Neither would you. And neither do the men, women and children who have no other choice, because where they live clean water is non-existent.>>Read full newsletter
You may never have given it a thought, but you can build a church! It would not be a majestic cathedral, but it will be a space set aside for people to praise God in an area of the world where every day is a struggle to survive.
Recently, the Minister General of the Order of Friars Minor (aka Franciscan Friars) sent a letter to the friars throughout the world informing them of a financial crisis with grave consequences for the Order.
It is important to note that the General Secretariat of the Franciscan Missions, Inc. in Waterford, Wisconsin, is a United States nonprofit, incorporated under the laws of the State of Wisconsin with its own US-based Board of Directors, independent of the operations in Rome. The financial crisis in Rome does not affect us. Our mission is to support the mission works of the Franciscan Friars throughout the world. In the midst of the current crisis, we intend to continue to support the individual missions of the Franciscans according to our purpose. Funds raised through our efforts are for mission projects and not for the direct administration of the Order.
We are thankful to all of our benefactors who make it possible for us at the Franciscan Mission Office to continue our support of the missions.
