The Canticle Cafe is an apostolate of our fraternity, in conjunction with
Franciscan Ministries, that offers not only meals and grocery items, but
also some socialization and companionship to our less fortunate brothers
and sisters. Before we serve the hot meal, we have the opportunity to sit
with our brothers and sisters as they share with us and each other some of
the ‘news of the street’.
We stand with them, as they pray….thanking God for the physical nutrition that is to
come…and ask for the ‘spiritual nutrition’ that is needed to meet the demands placed
on them in their way of life.
Not only do we serve them, but they serve us……they give to us the unique
opportunity to share in and better understand their way of life and the demands
it places on them.
