WHO WE ARE

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

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 Friar Place is a virtual or cyber-setting where people can engage with friar Al Mascia, as he explores music, the arts, mysticism, Franciscanism, religious imagination, rustic camping and Holy Newness! Watch episode 2, Whose side is God on?
