Strong Friar Presence – Syracuse, NY

On September 11, 2022, several of our friars living in our St. Francis Friary, in Syracuse, NY, were on hand for the community’s Northside Festival (Franciscan Northside Ministries). Many of our Syracuse ministries were represented. FrancisCorps FC24 members were there to not only enjoy the fair but also to provide sidewalk chalk as an activity for those who attended (photo cred). Our province’s pastoral ministry ~ Assumption Church ~ was well represented with a booth providing parish information & giveaways, manned by Our Lady of the Angels Province friars: Friar Jude DeAngelo, OFM Conv. (Pastor), friar Joseph Krondon, OFM Conv. (Apostolic Year of Formation) and Friar Jim Moore, OFM Conv. (Director of The Franciscan Place, in Destiny Mall, USA). Read more about the parish and how they minister to the people of Syracuse.

RaeAnn Kirk and Lucy Wilkerson are two of the five FrancisCorps current Volunteers.
