Franciscan Mission Service is turning 25 in 2015! It is with great joy and deep gratitude that we approach this landmark year. Thanks to the support of our benefactors, we have had more than 175 lay people come through our programs and go on to touch countless lives around the world and at home.
In order to honor this history and secure future opportunities for lay people to be formed and serve in the tradition of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi, we are reaching out to the entire Franciscan family for support and hope to receive a response from at least 100.
We prayerfully ask that every Secular fraternity, congregation of sisters, province of friars, Franciscan parish, and Franciscan-hearted organization prayerfully consider gifting us a donation and a blessing.
Those groups that commemorate our 25th year with a sponsorship or celebratory gift will be honored as part of our “Franciscan 100.” We will publicly thank these members of the Franciscan family throughout our 25th Anniversary year, through our online and in print publications, and especially during our World Care Benefit and Celebration on Friday, May 1, 2015, in Washington, DC.
Larger organizations, such as provinces, might consider giving at a sponsorship level (starting at $525). Smaller organizations, such as individual Secular fraternities, might consider giving at the celebratory gift level ($125 or $250).
Mail your gift to Franciscan Mission Service – PO Box 29034, Washington DC 20017 with “Franciscan 100” in the memo line, or give online here:
