Pope Francis recently called on all Christians to be living examples of hope to others. Through their ministries to those most in need and their prayers for peace and justice, the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities have given hope to thousands. We feel it is particularly important to have hope and to give hope in today’s tumultuous world; that’s why we created our #HaveHopeGiveHope campaign.
