With nearly 300 men serving the people of God in a wide variety of settings — colleges, parishes, urban ministry centers and diverse social ministries along the East Coast as well as in overseas missions — Holy Name Province is the largest of seven provinces in the United States belonging to the Order of Friars Minor. Like Franciscans world-wide, they strive to continue the Order’s 800-year-old mission, bringing the Gospel into the everyday experience of men and women through our life in fraternity and compassionate service to all.
The Franciscan Friars of Holy Name Province have served The Catholic Community of St. Francis of Assisi for 33 years. On January 3, 2020, they made the decision to withdraw from our parish. For more information, please click here.
