During a week packed with information on the international mission sites, the missioners in formation were blessed with a visit from Fr. Joe Nangle, OFM, spiritual father and former co-director of FMS. Fr. Joe spent many years serving in parishes in Bolivia and Peru, and wrote about his experiences in the book St. Francis and the Foolishness of God, which the missioners were required to read for formation. During his visit, Fr. Joe answered questions posed by the missioners in training, and he shared his wisdom through stories about his time on mission. After his sessions, he graciously celebrated Mass at the Casa for both DC Service Corps members and the missioners in formation.
