Attendees of the Celebration of St. Francis on October 2 will be able to vote for the best sermon. The sermon contest is a fundraiser to support the religious environmental work of Earth Ministry. Attendees on October 2 will vote by making a donation to Earth Ministry and indicating which sermon is their favorite. Two awards will be presented: The People’s Choice Award will go to the contestant with the highest number of votes as indicated on the donation ballot. The Franciscan Philanthropist Award will go to the contestant whose votes raise the most money in support of Earth Ministry’s work and mission.
Event admission is free, but we will ask you to help us select the winner by voting with your dollars - a donation that supports the work of Earth Ministry and is tax deductible.
