We are a fraternity in mission to the people of God.


One of seven provinces in the United States belonging to the Order of Friars Minor, we follow the way of St. Francis of Assisi, joyfully bringing the Gospel message to people of every age and culture.

Meet The Friars
 

Our ministries have served the East Coast for more than a century.


We meet people where they are and respond to the genuine needs of the least of the Lord’s brothers and sisters in a variety of ways, including parish, education, and campus ministries, and direct service to the poor.

The pursuit of justice, peace, and integrity of creation (JPIC) is central to our mission.


Centuries ago, St. Francis understood the fundamental interdependence of all life on Earth. Today, his life and teachings offer us a spiritual grounding that helps us appreciate our relationship with each other and with creation.
