Our annual World Care Benefit and Celebration was a wonderful gathering with fellow Franciscan-hearted folks and those committed to spiritually forming the laity and encouraging them to social action.
In his acceptance speech, award honoree Jack Jezreel of JustFaith ministries talked about the importance of linking social mission to spiritual mission.
Keynote speaker Fr. Dan Horan, OFM, reflected on the evening's theme of "Profoundly Changed: New Disciples for Peace, Justice, and Hope" by looking at the examples of St. Francis of Assisi and Pope Francis.
Thank you so much to all of our attendees for a great evening, and thank you especially to our volunteers, silent auction donors, advertisers, and sponsors.
