One of our newest areas of interest is Lincoln, Nebraska. They have sent many successful pilgrimages to the Holy Land and have begun to raise awareness for the Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land through various events and fundraisers, the most recent of which was a Benefit Dinner and Auction in March of 2014. With the support and interest of their Bishop, James Conley, the area shows great potential to develop into an FFHL Region.
“WHAT WE REALLY NEED TO DO, ESPECIALLY WHERE THERE IS LESS HOPE, IS TO GIVE HOPE, WHERE THERE IS LESS POSSIBILITY, IS TO GIVE OPPORTUNITIES, AND WHERE THERE IS SOMETIMES LESS FAITH, IS TO GIVE FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD.”
