Get involved in our Benefactor Circles!

Welcome to our Benefactor page. We hope you will choose to be part of one or more of our Benefactor Circles:


The Prayer Circle consists of individuals who commit to pray with us for our three general intentions:

  • the wisdom to know and do only what is ours to do;
  • the humility to be servant leaders and servant followers;
  • the patience necessary to be a motivation and inspiration to each other.

We, in turn, commit to pray for your intentions.

Connect with us through our mailing address:

Franciscan Peace Connection
8654 La Mesa Blvd, Suite A
La Mesa, CA 91941

We believe there is amazing power and leverage when people intentionally intercede for the same cause. Please join us in being intentional about expanding the Prayer Circle and its effects throughout our cosmos.

Thank you for choosing to connect with us to intentionally bring about the kin-dom of God!!!


Some people have more money and less time.

Some people are just plain generous with what they have.

Many of our folks are struggling financially. Your contributions are an investment in their future. We are regularly hearing and seeing how our programming is making a positive difference in attitude, behaviour, decision making, overall health, self-esteem, etc.

When you join the Donor Circle you automatically become part of the energy flow that empowers these changes.

We welcome, and are grateful for whatever you choose to share and when:
