Our Provincial the Very Reverend Father Patrick Quinn, TOR, would like to offer prayers and extend a warm welcome to every visitor to the website of the Immaculate Conception Province of the Third Order Regular of the Franciscan Friars in the United States of America.

Our Province has ministries throughout the United States and supports our Franciscan Missions where hope, compassion and nurishment bring the impoverished and poor to Christ in over seventeen countries.  We invite you to discover our Charism and become spiritually bonded with our community in the peace and love of the founder and Patron Saint of our Order, Saint Francis of Assisi.

In the videos below several of our friars tell you the story of our Province, how we support our ministries, and how young aspirants join our community.  May God bless you for spending time with us today.

Franciscan Friars, TOR, are called to a life that challenge us to live in poverty, chastity, and obedience to the Church. As Franciscans we have faith and trust in God to provide for our needs and rely on the generosity of our patrons and benefactors who partner with us by making a gift to support our ministry work and offer Mass requests with our TOR priests.

To learn more about sustaining our Franciscan ministry and our Monastery please visit the fundraising section of our website or send a Mass Card to send someone you love or a Franciscan Spiritual Enrollment.

It is our hope that you will find the information on our site helpful towards a better understanding of the life our father Saint Francis handed down to us.

We honor our tradition of fraternity and family that we strive to live in the communities where we are called to minister.

If your calling is to become a Franciscan Friar, TOR, learn more in our vocations videos and familiar yourself with the values and history of our Province.

When you are ready to take the next step our Vocations Director welcomes the opportunity to share more about joining our community.
