DEEPENING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE WHEATON FRANCISCANS COMMUNITY
As Wheaton Franciscans we are committed to living Gospel values as co-creators in the Christ mystery. We believe that through an open and grateful heart we are blessed and become a presence of blessing. This open heart is a deepening relationship with God, each other, and all of creation. There are many ways of deepening a relationship with our Community. If you believe that your spirit aligns with ours, or if you are curious to learn more about our Franciscan way of life, please inquire about the different ways of getting to know us.
“It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.”
Francis of Assisi
