On Thursday, November 7, the Most Reverend Mark L. Bartchak, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown, gave a presentation at Saint Francis titled “Pope Francis: His influence on the Church and the World.”
In an age of complexity, simplicity of the message of St. Francis of Assisi has more appeal than ever before: Humility. Generosity. Reverence. Service. Respect. Prayer. Joy. Love. These guiding principles of the Franciscans aren't just ideals to be admired, but values to be lived.
Campus ministry offers a variety of programs and organization for which community members can become involved.
The Immaculate Conception Chapel holds daily, weekend, and holy day masses. Our students serving in Liturgical Ministries bring a vibrancy to the mass through their music, readings, and participation in the services that is like no other!
Goals of Franciscan Higer Education include: A Humble and Generous Attitude toward Learning, Reverence for All Life and for the Goodness of All Humanity, Respect for the Uniqueness of Individual Persons, A Global Vision, Service to the Poor and the Needy, A Community of Faith and Prayer, A Spirit of Simplicity and Joy, and the Franciscan Presence
Our heart for service comes from the lessons that our patron St. Francis of Assisi himself imparted on us. St. Francis taught us that those have been given much are expected to give back in other ways and improve the society of which they are a part.
