Welcome to the Franciscan Vocation Ministry of Holy Name Province! Are you being called to our way of life? Have you ever considered becoming a Franciscan friar? I hope that the information provided on these pages will invite you to consider a rewarding, fulfilling life of dedicated service to God’s people. Bring along your gifts, talents, and life experiences, and join a movement that for 800 years has been rebuilding and renewing the Church. I look forward to hearing from you, answering questions, and assisting you in discerning your call.

Pope Francis Smiling with Hand Slightly Outstretched

“Do not bury your talents, the gifts that God has given you!

Do not be afraid to dream of great things!”

Pope Francis
