Welcome to Franciscan Voice Canada! The site is now on line for all our Canadian Secular Franciscans and their friends. The site is here to help us all better understand our Secular Franciscan vocation particularly in the area of Justice Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC). We hope this will be your "go to" place to learn about JPIC, download formation material, learn about the injustices around the world, see what we can do about it and finally become moved to take action.
JPIC is at the foundation of our profession. It is our goal to see all fraternities make JPIC a regular part of your fraternity's on-going formation program.
Let them individually and collectively be in the forefront in promoting justice by the testimony of their human lives and their courageous initiatives. Especially in the field of public life, they should make definite choices in harmony with their faith. - Rule 15
One of the greatest ways our collective voice can make a difference in this world is to take action on the calls for action posted on the Action Alerts page. The messages pope Francis has been sending out in the last several months invariably call us to take action in the areas of justice peace and integrity of creation, and as St. Francis said "go from Gospel to life and life to Gospel".
"Gospel to life and life to Gospel"
"Comment" boxes are placed through-out the site and we encourage you to make use of them. If there is a JPIC concern you are aware of and think it should be brought to the attention of our members, please contact us through one of the methods found here. As Franciscan brothers and sisters we can all help make a difference.
