Friar Formation
Though we might not often think about it, the United States is becoming mission territory.  More and more priests are coming from India, Africa, Haiti, and other areas in order to minister to Catholics in our country.  We believe that God continues to call American men to roles of service in the Church. It is the responsibility of our formation program to identify these men, invite them to join the friars, and prepare them for community life and Church ministry.

Your contribution to our Friar Formation will give financial support to our Vocation Office and will help underwrite the training of future Franciscan brothers and priests.
