Peace and all good!
This website offers a journey through the life and mission of the Franciscan Friars Conventual, a religious order that has been part of the life of the Roman Catholic Church for more than eight centuries. Here you’ll discover more about who we are, what we do, and how to join our brotherhood.
Throughout our history, Conventual Franciscans have offered a powerful and profound voice to the Church, society, and the cultural marketplace of ideas. The sections of this site explore the life and ministry of the friars today, as we continue to lend our voices to the mission of the Kingdom; we speak for the Gospel, for the value of community, for the impoverished and marginalized, for those yearning for justice, for the need to foster peace, and for the protection of God’s creation.
This site is designed and developed by our friars, representing voices from the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, Malta, and Lebanon. It features friar-produced video, podcasts, and photo-essay blogs, all informed by the Franciscan spiritual and intellectual tradition. It speaks to the issues, events, and cultural reference points important in the 21st century.
From the serious, to the topical, to the light-hearted, the connecting thread is the Joy of the Gospel. We hope this site manifests the dynamic and life-giving quality of our life as Friars Minor Conventual.
