Provincial Minister

Tom Nairn, OFM

of Sacred Heart Province

Welcomes you

to our website.



We invite men, age 20-45 to visit, pray and reflect with the Franciscan Friars for a weekend. It is an occasion to come away and to be with others who are considering a religious vocation, and who are on a similar path. This is a time of discovery, not necessarily decision.

​​​​​If you would like to participate in any of these events, or arrange a visit or Come and See in your area, please emailyes@befranciscan.com  -or- call: 314-766-1952.
