New website feature: Interactive map of local fraternities

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Early this year, Jan Parker, our National Minister, asked Regional Ministers to provide basic information about our local fraternities gathering dates and locations so we could map them on the OFS USA website ( At long last, we have a visual tool showing every Local Fraternity on a map!

The beauty of this achievement is one need only to enter a City/State and the map will pinpoint close by fraternities.  Contact information for each region is listed. This information will need to be updated periodically, but it is a terrific start.

Thanks to the Regional Ministers (or delegates) for providing the information and Lee Potts for putting together the mapping tool.

We’ll be posting the announcement on the website, Facebook and Twitter … so feel free to help us spread the word.

Test it out and let us know what you think.

May God’s blessings be upon you,

National Secretary
on behalf of the National Executive Council.

    This is a real crisis & a crime against humanity , never should humans be caged & held against their will when they are seeking help. We must do something, … change the laws, give then a fair & just chance at a new life. These are children who should be with their parents & families. We are a nation of immigrants!!!

    We need to act responsibly!!!

    As a +50 year member of the Franciscan Family every event that continues to record and explain our Vocation is a Joy to me. I’m aging, but not dead yet. Thanks for the resources, info on gatherings, and all the communications available. My cup overflows!
    Peace and Good.
