Preaching & Spiritual Centers

Preaching and Spiritual Centers

As Franciscans, our evangelical and missionary vocation impels us to bring the Gospel into the everyday experience of people through an itinerant ministry of the Word and through centers of spirituality where people may come to deepen their relationship with God, other persons, and creation.
