Come and See Weekend in Boston

Join other men interested in the friars for a weekend retreat at St. Anthony Shrine in Boston. Visitors will share meals and conversations, pray and celebrate the Eucharist with the friars to get an “immersion style” taste of Franciscan life. Participants will also learn about the ministries of our friars and our lay brothers and sisters.
