We invite you to our long-awaited “Franciscan Fall Festival” 2021 World Care Annual Benefit & Celebration, featuring Keynote Speaker Cardinal Wilton Gregory.

Our Annual Event will take place on October 21, 2021 at St. Francis Hall at 7:00 p.m. As we celebrate our home in Washington DC, we will honor those whose ministries in the city reflect Franciscan values.

Join us for an evening of fellowship, food, and fun!
In addition to the special keynote address by Cardinal Wilton Gregory, fun highlights of this year’s event include:
  • “Mr. Magic,” a vintage ice cream truck!
  • Peruvian chicken and an assortment of Peruvian side dishes by Don Pollo.
  • An array of original artwork by local and national Catholic artists.
Prioritizing all guests’ health and safety, FMS will require proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 upon check-in at the World Care Benefit. This embraces the same spirit of interdependence we ask of FMS missioners and volunteers, who serve with vulnerable communities.  Mask policy will be in accordance with Monastery and DC guidelines at the time of the event.
