The Conventual Franciscans of the St. Joseph of Cupertino Province began an exciting new venture in 1999 to address the cost of forming friar priests and brothers for the future. This new group of individuals who commit themselves to assist the Conventual Franciscans are called FRIENDS OF FRANCIS.
These FRIENDS OF FRANCIS have done a great deal of work since their beginning and continue to assist the friars in these particular areas: the cost of formation for young men studying for the priesthood and service as brothers, the cost of health care and retirement for senior friars, and other particular financial challenges for charitable works of this province.
You, too, can help us. We need your prayers and your financial assistance. If you want to see Franciscan priests and brothers serving the Church in our challenging times, please join the wonderful works of the FRIENDS OF FRANCIS.
Consider becoming a Friend of Francis!
