To receive a detailed color brochure, please contact Fr. Andrew Reitz, O.F.M. at 212-736-8500, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: If you are interested in this pilgrimage, please note that it may not be for you since there is more walking than usual. In Assisi there are hills to be climbed that are generally not part of a pilgrimage to Assisi. Also, the ability to keep up with the group is important. Walking in New York is one thing, walking in Assisi is more challenging. In Rome also, there are some sites that are generally not part of most pilgrimages, e.g., the Franciscan Church of Santa Maria Aracoeli with 124 steps. Consider this when making your plans.
10 Days: March 7-16, 2018
$2,479 from New York
Hosted by Fr. Andrew Reitz, O.F.M.
Sunday, October 29th after the 5:00 PM Mass
we will host our “State of the Parish Address.”
During this year’s stewardship campaign we tried to make everyone aware of 3 important numbers that reflect our financial realities at St. Francis:
$3.3 Milllion – which is our annual budget at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi
$25.00 – which is the per person per week cost it takes to run our church and
2.5% which is the percent of our income that we are asking people to commit to the Church of St. Francis of Assisi to be faithful members of the Church.
At the State of the Parish you will have an opportunity to receive a more detailed presentation of our budget: what makes up the $3.3 million dollar annual expenditure, how we are doing in raising that money and what we accomplish as a community with it.
This is part of our attempt at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi to practice good stewardship back to the community by providing as much financial transparency as we can. Please join us for this presentation and help us continue to make St. Francis of Assisi a place where the Gospel resounds in our city.
La 72 Home and Refuge for migrants is a project of the Franciscan Province of Southwest Mexico and focuses primarily on protecting migrants’ human rights and offering humanitarian assistance as they travel through Tenosique, Tabasco, Mexico, one of the most dangerous areas along the migratory route towards the United States. La “72” is named in honor of the 72 migrants that were murdered August 24, 2010 in San Fernando Tamaulipas.
Fray Tomás has been awarded the 2017 Human Rights First Award for his work in advocating for our migrant and refugee brothers and sisters. Since its founding in 2011, La 72 has helped more than 50,000 people experiencing forced migration.
Please join our panel discussion featuring Ramón Márques, Director of La 72, and other human rights advocates as we discuss the migration crisis in Mexico and Central America.
