Excerpts from Deacon Dave and Therese Ream, O.F.S announcement:

We are happy to announce that the entire series of 24 topics of Father John Sullivan, O.F.M.  revised course Keeping our Focus on St. Francis of Assisi is now available and easily accessible to everyone! Here’s how:

Go to the OFS-USA website  https://www.secularfranciscansusa.org

Resources > Formation & Spirituality > Ongoing Formation > New! Focus on St. Francis > Keeping Our Focus on St. Francis of Assisi

And there you will find the cover page (Father John actually did the Tau cross wood-burning of St. Francis!), the preface and the 24 topics.

We strongly recommend and encourage you to take the time to read the Preface before you start using this ongoing formation and personal enrichment resource. It contains valuable background information about the series and its author, an editors’ preface, a one-page list of the topics, a suggested procedure for using Keeping Our Focus on St. Francis of Assisi, and a very important documentation section including abbreviations and websites, copyright permissions, and a list of references.

May the total commitment to the Franciscan way of life which Father John Sullivan, O.F.M. exhibited in his own life continue to inspire each of us embrace the way of Saint Francis of Assisi with renewed vigor and purpose!

Wishing you and those with whom you will share these materials an abundance of the Lord’s peace and every blessing,

Therese and Deacon Dave Ream, O.F.S.
