The Franciscan Friars

The Friars are part of a Franciscan Order in Holy Name Province whose friars serve all along the Eastern seaboard, with our Provincial Office in New York City. They live the Life and Rule of St. Francis of Assisi in the Order that he established in the 13th century.

MISSION STATEMENT: "Holy Name Province is an evangelical and missionary fraternity called to minister in the Eastern United States and abroad. Rooted in the Catholic and Franciscan tradition, we are disciples of Christ who seek to bring the Gospel into the everyday experience of all people through Franciscan witness, popular preaching, teaching, and pastoral leadership. We foster Christian discipleship by collaborating with those whom we serve and by standing in solidarity with all people, especially the alienated, the immigrant, and the poor."
