FSPA for Peace and Justice blog

FSPA constitution tells us that true to our Franciscan calling, we commit ourselves to building Christ’s kingdom of justice and peace. We continue our efforts to preserve and nurture God’s creation, to increase social and global consciousness, to educate ourselves to political awareness and to encourage action to effect change when necessary.
