Our work

Witnessing the Good News

Whether brothers, priests, friars-in-training, or candidates for the Order, our mission is the same: To bring the Good News to all people. Our work is lead by friendliness, kindness, love and compassion — especially in service to the poor and underserved.

You can find us working in your community parishes, schools, urban and campus ministry centers, chaplaincies, on mission trips and at retreat centers. Our ministry work also serves homeless shelters and “Come Home” programs for alienated Catholics. Franciscan work is flexible, service-led and dedicated to witnessing the Gospel according to the real needs people everywhere.
