Franciscan Common Venture
A collaborative effort of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist with three other Franciscan communities is known as the Franciscan Common Venture. It began as a way of companioning the Tertiary Sisters of St. Francis in Cameroon, West Africa, who sought assistance in the many needs of their apostolate. This joint project has brought about inter-congregational reconciliation and a mutual focus of positive inter-cultural relationship. The other congregations are the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, La Crosse, Wisconsin; the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Francis, Wisconsin; and the Tertiary Sisters of St. Francis, Shisong, Cameroon.
