My greeting comes to you not only from me, but from over 5,000 Franciscan missionaries in over 600 missions around the world! Each day we pray for you and for all who are dear to you. It is the best gift we can offer in gratitude for the sacrifices you make on our behalf. I want to offer you just a glimpse of the reach and the impact of your generosity.

You are a wonderful friend to our missionaries. You show your care and commitment to helping the poor with your every gift in response to my letters. Your steadfast generosity touches more lives than you can imagine.

The Impact of Your Generosity

Through your partnership with us, children are educated and formed in the faith, the elderly are visited, the dying are comforted, the poor are given hope and solace, and the faith of many people is enriched.

Your goodness has helped us provide food, water, and medicine to refugees amid the devastation of war in Ukraine. You have helped us in India, where our friars educate children who spend their mornings picking through trash dumps. The education the children receive will help them break the cycle of poverty which is their life.

Through your prayers and faithful generosity, we have fed, educated, and provided medical treatment to thousands of orphans and other children living on the streets near our missions.

Your Support Has Enabled Us

Your support has enabled us to treat people suffering from malaria, tuberculosis, and leprosy at our hospital in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa, and other clinics in developing countries around the world.

You helped us provide emergency assistance to earthquake victims in Haiti, typhoon victims in the Philippines, and flood victims in India and Pakistan.

Your Generosity Has Helped Us

Your generosity has helped us provide safe and secure homes for the poor in Jamaica, India, and Kenya. You also helped us expand the Assisi Boys home in Meghalaya, India, to house an additional 50 children.

Your prayers for us bless the Franciscan Order with vocations, and your gifts have helped us educate and form future Franciscan missionaries who will serve the poor for generations to come. I am sure you can imagine the hope, joy, and renewed life these young men represent to our worldwide Franciscan community.

Support Our Franciscan Missionary Priests

In gratitude for all you have done for us, we want to offer you the opportunity to have Masses celebrated by our missionary priests.

Many of our Franciscan missionary priests use Mass stipends to buy food, fuel, and medicine. These stipends provide the financial means to live and serve the poor in dangerous and faraway places such as Pakistan, Syria, Vietnam, and Myanmar.

If you would like to arrange to have a Mass or a series of Masses offered, please complete the enclosed form and return it to me in the envelope provided. I will arrange for our missionary priests to celebrate Mass for your intentions as soon as possible.

I pray my grateful words can carry to you some measure of the great good you have made possible through your prayers and generous support. The impact of your generosity will help us deliver hope to people who live in poverty around the world.

Gratefully yours,

Brother Andrew Brophy, OFM

Executive Director
