About the Event
Night of Stars is the annual Franciscan fundraiser which helps us raise money to educate our Young Friars for future ministry, to help care for our Elder Friars who have served so many for so long, and to continue our service to over two million people who are fighting the obstacles of poverty, hunger, homelessness, and mental illness. This year, our new sponsorship program has taken on a new urgency based on the damage done to so many lives due to the COVID Pandemic. Past performers have included Kate Baldwin, Ariana DeBose, Norm Lewis, Taylor Iman Jones, Jen Colella, Whitney Bashor, Alexander Gemignani, Alysha Unphress and Mary Testa.
About the Franciscan Friars
The Franciscan Friars of Holy Name Province form the largest of the seven provinces belonging to the worldwide Order of Friars Minor (OFM) in the United States. Since our founding in 1901, we have continued St. Francis’s mission to make the Gospel message alive in our contemporary world. Our ministries are primarily located along the Eastern Seaboard, with some located overseas. We serve the people of God through many different apostolic ministries: parishes, schools, seminaries, campus ministry, and urban ministry centers and service churches; chaplaincies, communications, missions, retreat centers and other preaching ministries; services and shelters for the homeless, hungry and mentally ill; "come home" programs for alienated Catholics; and ministry to persons with AIDs. Today, our priorities are these: to empower lay leadership both within and outside of the Catholic Church; to advocate for the vulnerable, promoting justice and peace; and to reach out to those who are alienated from the Church or society.
Fr David Convertino, OFM
