Taste of St. Cloud:
You can support the Franciscan Community Volunteers and sample fare from local restaurants at the Taste of St. Cloud, hosted at Territory Golf Course each spring. Local restaurants donate their time and entrees for the tasting and proceeds go to FCV.
Save the date for our 5th annual Taste of St. Cloud, which will be Monday, May 5th, 2014 - we're looking forward to celebrating the next Taste on Cinco de Mayo!

Each volunteer is paired with local 'companions' (formerly called 'sponsors') often a Franciscan Sister or a Franciscan Associate or a couple or individual in the community who adopt the volunteer for the year by making them feel welcomed in the area with particular attention to those who live far from their families. These partnerships are mutually enriching.
If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Companion for the 2013-2014 program year, please contact Sister Clara Stang, FCV Director firstname.lastname@example.org; or Kaitlin Depuydt, Associate Director email@example.com for more information. Both can be reached by phone at (320) 229-0307.
