If the Pope can tweet, friars can text!

Starting this month, Holy Name Franciscan Province, USA,

is accepting prayer intentions via text messaging through its new

“Text a Prayer Intention to a Franciscan Friar” programme.

To participate, text the word PRAYER to 306-44.

According to Fr. David Convertino, OFM,

“This is one more way of reaching people who ask us to pray for them.

We hope it can reach people all around the globe.”
