St. Francis Alliance

St. Francis Alliance: Faithful Voices for Animals is a group of Catholics and other people of good will committed to seeking a just and compassionate world for all creatures. Inspired by Pope Francis’s encyclical on integral ecology, Laudato Si’, we aim to foster dialogue, to educate, and to act faithfully in our daily choices to promote the inherent value of animals, who share our common home.
