U.S. Franciscans Endorse Franciscan Common Ground

As a collaboration between the different members of the Franciscan Family, Franciscan Common Ground has gathered the support of many religious communities and key partner organizations. The Provincial Ministers of the seven OFM Provinces of the United States of America have recently issued a letter of endorsement for this important and timely conference.

The letter reads, “As leaders of the more than 1,000 Franciscan friars in the United States, we would like to offer our word of support for the Franciscan Common Ground Conference on Migration which will take place in New York City on May 21, 2016. This important conference will bring together Franciscan voices to speak words of healing and support and create new avenues for networking and collaboration to reach out to the “foreigner and stranger” in our midst as brothers and sisters.”

The full letter of endorsement can be seen here, as well as on the USFranciscans website.
