Please support the Marian Franciscans’ “Spring Forward” E-Fundraiser.
In August, 2017, the Marian Franciscans will be beginning a Canonical Novitiate (a required element in the formation of a religious sister that consists of a year of intense study and prayer that is cloistered). After that year we will be returning to our active ministries in the Western New York area.
This fundraiser has the aim to assist in defraying the costs of our present administrative functions, preparations for novitiate, upcoming ministries, and habit materials.
Yes, you read that right! At the end of this summer the Marian Franciscans will be received into the full habit with the permission of the Bishop. Please support us during this exciting time. A newsletter will be sent out to all of our family, friends, and benefactors with news and updates in Late August/Early September at the close of this fundraiser.
