We are thrilled with the response to FRANKLY and would love you to know how Parishes are using FRANKLY to impact their communities…
“I raised the idea with the parish council of gifting a copy of FRANKLY to each family at Christmas Mass. The family of one parish councillor made a sizable donation to cover the cost of eight boxes, stating that their desire to be evangelisers this year might not find any better expression than a project like this. They see it as their contribution and a wonderful lead-in to the year of Mercy.
“Our plan is to print a gift card label with our usual parish Mass times and stick it inside the front cover of FRANKLY, then personally hand copies to each family at our Christmas Masses.”

“FRANKLY brings Pope Francis and his message to mind; it has a fresh new look to it and short, relevant articles. It’s very good value. Everyone who has seen it so far has been impressed with it.
“We have five education centres in our parish. We’ll be giving a copy to all newly-enrolled families at the schools, to people who come to have their children baptised, and to other families accessing the parish’s sacramental programs.”
