Commission of Charism Services

The Commission of Charism Service (CCS)  provides a forum for networking among various interest groups and individuals. We will share together our skills, gifts and talents to develop and exchange resources in light of the variety of Franciscan-related organizations and ministries that share our charism.  We will participate in activities of the Federation within our Commission and will make suggestions to the National Board agenda and speakers for the AFC.  We will keep the membership updated through our web page and the monthly publication of Musings.
