Fransciscan Safeguard

We invite anyone who may have been abused by a Franciscan, living, former or deceased,
and who has never come forward to do so, in order that they can receive help and support.

Our Mission & Vision

We serve the Church and the world as brothers and priests in a variety of ministries.

We devote our lives to the search for God in a communal life of poverty, prayer, and service to others. 

We strive to continue our Order’s 800-year-old mission, bringing the Gospel into the everyday experience of men and women through our life in fraternity and compassionate service to all.

Inspired by the life of St. Francis of Assisi, to bring the Gospel of Joy and Grace to the world.

THE History OF OUR FOUNDER –

The Life of

St. Francis of Assisi 

In his lifetime, he was known simply as “Il Poverello,” the poor one. Yet few poor men in the history of the world have touched as many souls and affected as many lives as Francis of Assisi. The ideals he embraced-his passion for peace, his guest for simplicity and his respect for all of creation – are as relevant today as they were to the medieval society into which he was born more than 800 years ago.

SHOP NOW

St. Anthony – Perpetual Novena :  EVERY TUESDAY  MASS-10:00AM & 7:30PM

Saint Anthony was born in Lisbon in Portugal in 1195. He was the son of wealthy parents who had him christened Ferdinand. When he was 15 years old he joined the Canons Regular of Saint Augustine, in the convent of Saint Vincent, just outside the city walls (1210).
