“A charism needs to be “lived according to the place, times and people.
The charism is not a bottle of distilled water. It needs to be lived with energy.” – Pope Francis

Charism is a gift or grace from the Divine for the sake of ALL creation. It is the enduring and underlying energy or essence that challenges us to change so that we continue to meet the new needs of the times within our personal and communal reality. Mission is the action or service that meet current needs. 

The Wheaton Franciscans seek to share our charism and mission through invitation, networking, community-building, and welcoming all who seek to deepen their relationship with the Divine and one another.
