Revival School Project

Just because you live in a poor neighborhood in the “bush country” of Jamaica, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have access to a quality education. Help us expand and improve the school in Revival, Jamaica, where our friars are serving on mission.


Living and proclaiming the Gospel is our goal. We do so as brothers to each other and to the world, living with and for the poor, promoting justice, peace and the care of creation, working with all women and men of good will and inviting them to share our Franciscan spirit. Facing our future with hope, we echo Francis of Assisi who said, “Let us begin again.”

Justice & Peace

Franciscans today we work to bring about justice and peace, to end violence and war, poverty and oppression, and the destruction of our planet.

Who We Are

We serve the Catholic Church as brothers and priests, devoting our lives to the search for God in a communal life of poverty, prayer, and service to others.

The “Bleacher Brothers”


Fathers Casey Cole and Roberto “Tito” Serrano, the “Bleacher Brothers” hit the road in May for a road trip that will take them to every Major League Baseball stadium in the United States, where they will meet people where they are and invite them to return home to Jesus and His Church. In this video they visit Cincinnati.
