A Fraternity in Mission to the People of God

With more than 300 men serving the people of God in a wide variety of settings — colleges, parishes, urban ministry centers and diverse social ministries along the East Coast as well as in overseas missions — we are the largest of seven provinces in the United States belonging to the Order of Friars Minor. Like Franciscans world-wide, 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.
