Christmas happens more than once a year! The Nativity of Jesus happened only once in history, but His birth happens again and again when He touches lives through the good works of each of us as we reach out to help our sisters and brothers in need. We can make Christmas happen over and over again in the lives we change through love. May this Christmas bring you the peace, happiness, serenity and love that comes from the Infant Lord’s love. You are being prayed for everyday by the Franciscan Friars.
We can only continue our work with the poor, the education of our young Friars for future ministry and to provide care for our elder and sick Friars, if you support us in every place where we serve the needs of others. Over 2 million children, women, men, and families depend on the Franciscan Friars for food, clothing, diapers, formula each year. Our help centers are at a major shortage for these basic necessities, and now that the winter is approaching, they are of the utmost importance. Take the Franciscan Challenge this Christmas!
