Canticle Campus

Canticle Campus is a joint effort within the Franciscan family, both Catholic and Protestant, to establish a central location of education and dialog around the role of prophetic voice in Franciscan Faith Life. The collaboration was initiated around the ecumenical efforts of the Franciscan Action Network. Written resources are pre-selected and participants are encouraged to read and provide ongoing discussion of resources through this online tool.

The intention of Canticle Campus is to build a non-profit collaboration of Franciscan Family members and Franciscan-hearted people. Our goal is to establish a free online college where knowledge, understanding, and dialog in civility, tolerance and religious freedom (in the spirit of Francis and Clare of Assisi) are primary. The classes are offered in the spirit of Francis and Clare so there is no cost except to purchase the book for the class.


This season we will be we will be reading The Saint and the Sultan: The Crusades, Islam, and Francis of Assisi’s Mission of Peace by Paul Moses.

Classes will begin August 21, 2016. Francesca Wigle, TSSF, and FAN Action Commissioner will be the facilitator and administrator. If you would like to learn more, please email her at
