“Each one of us has a story; a story of grace, a story of sin, a story of journey, many things. And it’s good to pray with our story.”
Pope Francis, October 7, 2014

With these words, Pope Francis shared the essence of what it means to be Franciscan – the spirit that animates the Franciscan Center’s ministry of service to poor and hungry citizens of Baltimore.

Each person whose life we have touched with this ministry throughout the past 46 years has his or her own special story – and each one has become a part of our story. St. Francis of Assisi challenged each of us to “preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary, use words.” Clearly, our stories are our most profound prayers.

We’d love to hear your story. Please take a moment today to share how the Franciscan Center has touched your life and what that has meant to you. As we approach our 50th year of service to the Baltimore community, we’re starting a book of memories from past and present clients, volunteers and staff – the story of love that is the Franciscan Center. From time to time, we may also share some of these stories in our quarterly newsletter, website and social media sites.

Please contact Meg Ducey to share your story at (410) 467-5340, Ext. 117 or mducey@fcbmore.org. We won’t use your name unless you want us to.

Bless you for the many wonderful ways in which you’ve shared our story! We look forward to hearing from you.
