Chapter 2016 Wisdom Statement


Wheaton Franciscans

Chapter 2016

Wisdom Statement


Compelled by the Spirit to fresh expressions of our Franciscan life,

We commit:

to exploring again the heart of our charism,

to deepening our bonds with each other, and

to facing the mystery of the not-yet-know,

that we may respond anew to the needs of our times.


We go forth to be a blessing in the heart of the world.
