The Goals of JPIC

  1. To foster an atmosphere in fraternity, the privileged place, where with openness and trust, we may share with each other, the manner in which our personal conversions are shaping our Franciscan lives.
  2. To reinforce the appreciation of the dignity of the human person in the choices made in our professed lives by responding in charity and patience to all we meet and to respond as Franciscans to anything which would denigrate the dignity of the human person, beginning with our own personal communications with one another.
  3. To assist in the living out of obedience to the common good as intended by God so that the professed Secular Franciscan builds up all that is good for all of Creation and does nothing which would damage the fabric of communal interdependence.
  4. To strengthen the professed Secular Franciscans'commitment to solidarity with all of Creation enabling them to make those choicees in life which would bring about a more fraternal and evangelical world. 

Build up the world fraternity!
