Minister’s Letter with Letter from Minister General – Coronavirus

We have just received a letter from our Minister General regarding the Coronavirus (attached, in both English and Spanish).  Please read it and distribute widely.  We will also share this letter via our website.   I am thankful for Tibor's approach which calls us to both prayer and action, and sets the proper tone for us as Secular Franciscans facing these unusual times.

National Minister’s Message – TAU-USA Summer/Fall 2019

No matter what method we use to help us get things done, there are times in life when we are stopped dead in our tracks. It may be loss, conflict or confusion, but when something big lands right in our path, we are often stopped short. ... Purity of heart sets us free. St. Francis calls us to this freedom, to “put aside every care and anxiety, to serve, love, honor and adore the Lord God with a clean heart and a pure mind."

OFS Mission Opportunity – To Assist Migrants and Refugees

We are in troubling times. We hear the news of migrants and refugees at the border, and we ask, “what is ours to do?” As directed by our Bishops, we need to put two feet of love in action. We need both social action and charitable works. Certainly, there are root causes that need to be addressed, and our country’s immigration laws need revision, but meanwhile, we must meet the immediate needs of these brothers and sisters. To that end, the National Executive Council OFS-USA offers this Mission Opportunity for Secular Franciscans to assist Project Oak Tree.
