Franciscan friars are working selflessly and courageously to bring hope to the men, women, and children of Ukraine.
Father Danyil Botvina, OFM, the Provincial of the Franciscan Province of St. Michael the Archangel in Ukraine has sent an urgent request for funds to help provide food, medicine, and shelter to the refugees living through this tragedy.
The province has 16 friaries with 65 friars serving 54 parishes in Ukraine. As you read this, women and children are seeking food and protection at the friaries as the country undergoes siege by the Russians.
The friars plan to stay and serve the people of the war zone. Read more about their work and a way to contribute at the Franciscan Missions website.
