FrancisCorps is mentioned in “Francis of Assisi and the Future of Faith.” by Dan Horan, OFM. Horan quotes one of our alums, AJ Lapoint (FC 10): “La Point said that, while there are a variety of volunteer organizations available to young adults to choose from, “the Franciscan spirituality that exists in a program like FrancisCorps makes the program more accessible to a young adult.” He sees his experience as a Franciscan volunteer as both formative and challenging. “This spirituality is going to offer more [than other volunteer opportunities] in the way of community, guidance, and faith.”
This an excellent book on how Franciscans are uniquely prepared to engage young adults in the digital age. It’s published by Tan and you can even get it at iTunes for iPad. Congrats to AJ for a good job sharing his experience.
What about you? Are you ready to experience life in FrancisCorps?
