In the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi
and through creative service in preference for the poor,
the Franciscan Connection
provides pastoral listening, respectful support
and emergency assistance
to low-income St. Louis area families in times of need.
with a team of dedicated volunteers and benefactors
we, friars and friends,
envision a neighborhood
free of substandard living conditions
and a community
truly wish to live.
