Members of Holy Name Province can be found in anything from the traditional brown habit to business casual attire to work clothes. They live in cities, suburbs and rural areas. Their backgrounds are diverse and their ministries are varied; most serve in pastoral roles, while others work in education, social ministry, administration and manual trades.
Holy Name Province friars live in local fraternities, or friaries, stretching from New England to Florida. Most friaries are connected with a ministry such as a parish or school. Some friars live singly due to the nature or location of their ministries (i.e. education, healthcare and chaplain work), but gather periodically with other friars.
