Meet Our Student Friars

Read about the backgrounds of our men who are currently in the Program of Initial Formation – a years-long process of gradual personal, spiritual and ministerial development as one trains to become a Franciscan friar – or studying for the priesthood. Initial formation consists of three phases – postulancy, novitiate, or post-novitiate. Please continue to pray for our men in formation as they continue discerning their call to religious life.

Are you called to be a Franciscan? Have questions about beginning the formation process? Contact our vocation office to speak to a friar.
