Southwest Outreach

El Paso Outreach – This outreach includes enhancement of our existing El Paso Outreach for new immigrants. This includes providing food, shelter, spiritual guidance and social services to legitimate asylum seekers who need help while waiting for the hearings, which can take months.

Fund for Student Internships – This fund will allow university students to assist our friars in various ministries, providing them insight into the ways our friars serve those most in need and allowing them time to discern their possible calling to join the Franciscan brotherhood.

International Student Friar Fund – This fund will make it possible to provide formation for students from poorer provinces in Central America, Mexico, India, and Africa. They will receive formation training in a truly intercultural
school, inaugurating them to the global brotherhood of
the Franciscans.
