Secular Franciscan Web TV

The public relations team for Secular Franciscan Order in the U.S. has unveiled the first in a series of web tv shows on the Order.

Featuring an interview with 2006-2009 National Minister Patrick Mendés, the inaugural episode in about 10 minutes in length and discusses what the order is, the Secular Franciscan vocation and charism, typical ministries, and the kinds of people who become involved.

"Future episodes will include both interviews and action shots, and vary in length from 3 to 10 minutes," noted national PR co-chairs Bob and Mary Stronach, SFO. Mary is the host interviewer.

"We started the project because we see both video and the web as tools to help communicate the Secular Franciscan vocation," Mary said.
