Case Statements for Our Needs

The Franciscan Friars of the Holy Spirit trust in the Father’s abundant provision for our needs. Knowing that He provides most often through His people, we rely heavily on the financial generosity of benefactors across the country to cover monthly bills, repair and maintenance of friaries and vehicles, staff salaries, retreats, and other living expenses throughout the year. We invite you to consider a monthly or annual pledge to support our livelihood so that we can continue to minister effectively to our Native American and inner-city parishes. Below are just a few ways that your regular contribution may be used.
