How Do I Celebrate My Faith

Erik Ranstrom - November 30, 2016

Faith, for me, is a daily beckoning to trust, and entrust myself to, a world of unseen and imaginative reality that pervades the seen and the ordinary. This beckoning comes from beyond myself, from the utterly mysterious and loving reality that the Church comes into contact with through the enigmatic presence of Jesus of Nazareth, crucified and risen, one in being with the Father.

St. Francis Inn Philadelphia

"What you receive as a gift, give as a gift,"

Jay Verzosa, Director of Campus Ministry - October 05, 2016

Fr. Mychal Judge, OFM would often say "What you receive as a gift, give as a gift," and so it has been one of the great blessings of my career in campus ministry to bring students to Saint Francis Inn Ministries in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. I first encountered the Inn as a student myself, on my first service trip, and over the years I have learned that, while there are many good places that feed the hungry and homeless, there is no place like Saint Francis Inn.
