Project Description

Franciscan Land Program – Meriden, Connecticut

The Franciscan Community Service-based Land Program was established by the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist as a volunteer service program for young adults seeking an opportunity to pursue personal growth, learn work skills and to relate to the needs of soil, plants and animals, and the cycles of nature.

Through manual labor and instruction under a Franciscan master, combined with classes on the teachings of the Church regarding work, young people gain a deeper understanding of nature and of the Catholic faith and God’s place in their lives.
