Franciscan Charities - Archives
Franciscan Charities would like to thank the Archive office for all of the work they do for the Province, friars and our office as well.  We are able to share with our benefactors interesting stories of our past.  

And to you, our benefactors, you can appreciate the value of your contribution knowing that we have a lengthy fruitful past and with your help we will be able to continue to minister to the needs of our society.  We are very grateful to the support you have given us.  Your general contributions are able to support the good work of the friars as well as those who support them, such as the Office of Archives.

The Franciscans founded St. Anthony Friary and Parish in 1863 in St. Louis Missouri.  St. Anthony's Friary was made a guardianate in 1872 and was chosen as the residence of the Father Provincial when the province was erected in 1879.  Our current Father Provincial resides at St. Anthony's Friary here in St. Louis Missouri.

The office of Franciscan Charities and the Archives are both located in St. Anthony's Friary in St. Louis MIssouri.
