"Franciscan Journey" JPIC Supplements
The Franciscan Journey (Updated version 2010) by Lester Bach, OFM Cap.
JPIC supplements by Andrew Conradi, ofs (JPIC National Animator), 2016

Introduction to Integrating JPIC into Initial Formation

The Franciscan Journey (Updated version 2010) by Lester Bach, OFM Cap does include JPIC material but not as in depth as a growing awareness in the Franciscan Family believe should be the case; especially in light of Laudato Si’: On Care for our Common Home (2015) which The Franciscan Journey pre-dates.

JPIC supplements contain additional material from Understanding JPIC by Andrew Conradi, ofs (National JPIC Animator) to integrate JPIC into Franciscan Journey at particular relevant places/times in formation. JPIC supplements aim to enrich our understanding of JPIC, Franciscan vision and values and their central place in the Franciscan charism and spirituality.

A supplement is usually 1-7 pages long and its use, although entirely optional at the discretion of the formator, is strongly encouraged. One fraternity’s experience with a couple of the earlier supplements lead formators to say they are useful and at the very least should be assigned as additional reading.
