As part of The Franciscan School’s annual Justice Fair on June 8th, Director of Pastoral Ministries Trevor Thompson and Coordinator of Justice and Peace Bonnie Angel offered a workshop to sixth and seventh graders on “Doing Justice through Advocacy.” 

As part of the workshop, students wrote letters to Senators Richard Burr and Kay Hagan and Representative David Price urging them not to cut hunger-reducing programs in the midst of a difficult fiscal year.  St. Francis of Assisi has participated in several Bread for the World Offering of Letters.  Inspired by this model, over eighty letters were sent to Washington DC for our school youth.
