Are you aware of how the Franciscan First Order raises funds for the Missions? It is done on a project-by-project basis. Missionaries in various locations propose their intended projects and those provincially approved projects are then featured in the magazine “Missions des Franciscains” so that people can choose what projects they might like to support.
At our St. Patrick’s Fraternity meeting, Sunday 21 February 2016, we had the pleasure of the company of Richard Chartier, ofs, Director of the Missions Office (Bureau des Missions) & Editor in Chief of the magazine, “Missions des Franciscains”. At our invitation, he kindly spoke to us about some of the current Franciscan missionary projects in Africa and beyond, elaborating on two projects in the Congo which our fraternity has decided to help.

This page is for fraternities to share their JPIC goals, initiatives and progress. We can learn so much from each other. Fraternities, please send us what you are doing.
