We are Franciscan friars — a fraternity more than 800 years in the making. We serve the poor and marginalized in urban and rural communities all across the United States, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Jamaica.
Practicing daily devotions and quiet reflection to be agents of peace
Living simply while creating a community of mutual care
Care for the poor
Using our God-given talents to serve the underserved
A life of service
We love being a part of your community — working in schools and universities, hospitals, prisons, parishes and more. Our mission is rooted in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, and our purpose is to care for all.
In 2023, Franciscan friars from six provinces brought together their gifts to form our new province. With a spirited sense of renewal, we are excited to better serve our communities as a new coast to coast fraternity.
