FSA June 2020 eNewsletter

Within our newsletter are some reflections on Laudato si’ including ideas for action in your school community – like great online sites for browsing Australian secondhand clothes, including The Closet and Mottainai.  We are also proud to launch our specialty resource ‘Franciscan Voices’ – this will be a distinctly Franciscan series of articles from Franciscan scholars around the globe, exclusively for you from FSA. Fr John Boyd-Bolan writes about Laudato si’ and we will send another in a couple of weeks. Check it out!

The Season of Creation

The annual celebration of prayer and action for our common home. Pope Francis has invited us all to take part. It is the next moment in the Laudato Si’ anniversary year that the Vatican just announced. It’s the next time for us to come together as one global Catholic community to put the Laudato Si’ vision into practice.

  • to enhance Franciscan Spirituality in Primary and Secondary Education

FSA Membership is extended to schools that are linked to the Spirituality of St Francis through Franciscan foundations or bearing the name of Francis, Clare and St Anthony, or through any other Franciscan relationship.
