Right beside the Greene Street COL-LAB that we featured recently, Greensboro has a Franciscan Center. It has been here since 1989. Inside, on Wednesdays, they offer Catholic mass at noon with the opportunity to partake in the Eucharist. There is also a bookstore and gift shop where you can purchase church supplies and religious items from Bibles and laminated prayer cards to rosary beads to religious jewelry. Father Luis Canino, is affiliated with this Franciscan Center, as well at the St. Francis Springs Prayer Center. People who know him say very nice things about him.
The Franciscan Center believes in living the Gospel by making Christ the center of one's life and in being joyous and loving one another.* When you enter through the front door of this space, you will sense a tranquil respite from the hectic pace of your busy life. Even the signage with the extended cross and letters in all-caps is very subtle. The center also offers space to 12 step programs in the community.
Have you noticed The Franciscan Center downtown before?
Happy Sunday, dear readers. Can you believe tomorrow is August 1st?
