As friars of the new millennium, we live a unique expression of the committed life. Our brothers are involved in various ministries of the church which include but are not limited to hospital work, parish, youth, music ministries, and religious education. Our community originated in the Albany diocese and currently has brothers in New York: Albany, Buffalo, the Utica area, and in Metro New York, Long Island, New Jersey, California, Illinois, Michigan, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and the Provinces of Canada.
We Are Franciscans
We live and work independently and are self-supporting. The brothers strive in their lives and ministries toward Gospel conversion in the shadow of their Blessed Father Francis. We promise obedience to our Holy Pontiff, and to the Ordinaries of the diocese in which each brother lives.
