Franciscans Help Mother Earth Heal Herself

Please view this video we just put on Youtube:

St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology, would be proud of his brothers in the Province of St. Barbara who transformed a polluted copper mine by helping Mother Earth heal herself– a reclamation of the Gibson Mine.


Franciscans for Justice is a joint project of the O.F.M. Franciscan Friars of the St. Barbara Province and the Our Lady of Guadalupe Province. Franciscan Friars are a Roman Catholic religious community called and committed to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the prophetic spirit of St. Francis of Assisi. We work with others to promote justice, peace and care for creation, in our times.
