Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This coming 24 May will mark the 5th anniversary of Pope Francis’ Encyclical, “Laudato Si’”. In it
the Holy Father, moved by the concern generated by “the cracks in the planet that we inhabit as well as … the profoundly human causes of environmental degradation” (LS 163), expressed his desire for the opening of a dialogue among all the inhabitants of our planet with a goal of setting in motion global action for the good of our common home.

Request for all the Franciscan brothers in the world to pray for Kenya.


Dear Brothers Today,

the 26th October, 2017, Kenya is once again returning to the polls to elect a President, after August’s election was annulled by the Supreme Court.

This is a very difficult moment for this beautiful country. The headquarters of OFM’s East Africa province is located here in the country’s capital, Nairobi.
