COVID-19 message from Father Robert

Dear Friends and Benefactors,

May God grant you peace and health during this time of great and unprecedented need.

At Franciscan Missions, we remain devoted to providing for the poor and the hurting as we face the greatest health crisis in generations. Your prayers and support will be vital in the weeks and months ahead.

We are taking extensive precautions to ensure the health and safety of our missionaries, those we serve, and our staff. Because of this, our office is currently closed as a precautionary measure for the safety and concern of all.

Please bear with us as we strive to manage this global health crisis.

Due to the closure, we are not able to respond to you as quickly as we would like to, and it will also take us longer to process and acknowledge your gifts. However, please know that we are grateful!

The best way to contact us is to e-mail us at and we will respond as soon as we can. You can also submit your prayer request or donate on our website.

Now more than ever, we must hold fast to the great virtue of HOPE. In the words of Pope St. John Paul II – “Do not be afraid. Open wide the doors of Christ.” We must open the doors of our hearts to Christ and trust in the Lord who will give us everything we need.

Be assured of my prayers and the prayers of the friars each day for you, your loved ones and those who are faced with all of the challenges related to this worldwide pandemic. Pray for us also.

God bless you,

Fr. Robert, O.F.M.
