Mission Statement

In the Spirit of Francis of Assisi, the Franciscan Missionary Union supports the mission outreach of the Sacred Heart Province.

As the Spirit calls us to be instruments of change and heralds of peace and reconciliation in the world, serving all people, especially the poor and marginalized, the Franciscan Missionary Union:  
  • Evangelizes ourselves and others as we live and proclaim the Gospel in other lands and our own, respectful of the unique cultures in which we work;
  • Encourages, promotes and fosters new forms, methods and directions of evangelization in fidelity to our Franciscan charism; 
  • Generates and stewards funds necessary to enable our missionary endeavors to be visible and effective in all the world around us.

Galena update from the flood of May/2013

These photos are of Bro. Justin's house that show how it is built on a metal frame above the flood plane on a rock base.  The next photos show the house construction and some of the interior.  The next photos are of the Church and rectory with Br. Justin's house in the back.  Looks like the winter of 2014 will offer a good well insulated structure giving plenty of warmth to its inhabitants.

Thanks to many who helped donate for this reconstruction.
