32th Northeast Regional Convocation TSSF was held at the Loyola House of Retreats Morristown, NJ on August 8th to 10th, 2014. Peter Stube led discussions about how Francis’ early vision of God’s encouragement to “Repair my House” is a call to Franciscans today to look at the world, serve its needs and respond in a way that respects local cultures as we live the Gospel.

An Eastertide retreat was held at the Little Portion friary Friday May 9th through Sunday, May 11. It was a wonderful time to recharge our batteries and meet our fellow tertiaries that we do not get to see as often as those from our own fellowship. Thank you David Lawson-Beck for putting it together.
In this time of uncertainty and violence in Egypt, let us pray for a peaceful resolution to their troubles. Please pray for the Coptic, Anglican and other Christian churches in Egypt. Please pray for all of Egypt's people.
Almighty God our heavenly Father, guide the nations of the world into the way of justice and truth, and establish among them that peace which is the fruit of righteousness, that they may become the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. O God, the Father of all, lead all of us from prejudice to truth: deliver all of us from hatred, cruelty, and revenge; and in your good time enable us all to stand reconciled before you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Please pray also for peace in Syria as the nations of the world attempt to sort out who brought death and destruction through chemical weapons to the civilian population of that country.
Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love: So mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of one Father; to whom be dominion and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
