We are making a film based on Paul Alexander TSSF’s well-known one-man performance: “The Life of St Francis”. Filming took place during July 2014 at Hilfield Friary. We have had grants from TSSF, SSF and Hymns Ancient & Modern which have lifted our total. More info at: or click on the Flickr link

Event details

Making a Film about Finding Saint Francis

Many tertiaries will have seen, or heard of, Paul’s one-man performance. He’s performed it countless times across the world over nearly four decades. Now the time’s come not just to record it for TSSF, but also to make a film version available internationally. So this is a work of mission– to make our Lord, and his servant Francis, known and loved throughout the world in line with our Aims.
The actors and crew are professionals, some of them recent film school graduates and they’re giving their time and skills for token payment.
We now have funds to complete filming and the film is in final stages of post-production.
Please give generously
Pax et Bonum!

I am a novice in the Tertiary Group in Brussels and met Mr John Wiltshire in an area Meeting at Romford in July 2014. I had decided to make a donation then.

Greetings to Paul Alexander, who long ago came to Alderholt and recited John's Gospel. I remember it, and him, with gratitude and as a result I want to support this great project.

"At the centre of it all was the frail little figure of St.Francis, burning with zeal, tireless and fearless, a living expression of the gospel of love which he so ardently preached." (Moorman) May Il Poverello live again!
