of the Catholic Apostolic Church In North America

The Franciscan Community of Reconciliation is a community that embraces the spirit and commitment to the Gospels of Francis and Clare of Assisi and Charles of Brazil. These holy Saints in answering God's call, recognized the need to initiate reform in the church, sought social justice, embraced the poor and reconciled to the church those who were no longer welcome. We see their mission as one with the prophetic mission of Christ.  See the information video about the CACINA Franciscans below.   


As a community we will share these saints' vision:

By preaching and living the Gospel message in word and action
By reaching out to God's people without discrimination
By recognizing we are called to be servants of the servants
By allowing the Holy Spirit to make us instruments of peace
By helping others find the love of God in all things
By seeking Social Justice for all
By recognizing and embracing the poverty of God's children
By protecting the dignity of all creation
By joining the whole church in daily prayer, worship and devotion
