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-known
that we may respond anew to the needs of our times.
We go forth to be a blessing in the heart of the world.

The Wheaton Franciscans thank all who held us in prayer during this Chapter. Please continue to hold our current leadership team, as well as our new leadership team in your thoughts and prayers as we move through this time of transition. The installation of the newly elected Provincial Council will take place Sunday, June 12, 2016 at the 10:00 a.m. liturgy, at Our Lady of the Angels chapel.
