You may have already begun your Christmas shopping, but have you considered how to enter into the "Spirit of Giving" this upcoming Christmas season? Here are three ways to participate in the life-giving ministry of the Friars.
In honor of the Centro Pro Unione’s 50th anniversary, the Friars will host the 21st annual conference in recognition of Servant of God Paul Wattson and Mother Lurana White.

The Friars recognize that discovering one’s vocation is not usually as simple as asking God’s will for your life and hearing a direct, clear answer immediately in one’s heart. Very often, it’s a process, a conversation between an individual and God, sometimes over the course of a number of years.
Our Friars have been faithfully serving the community for over fifty years at the Chapel of Our Savior in Brockton, Massachusetts.

This fall has been a time of celebration for the entire community of Friars as we witnessed the profession of vows and vow renewals of three men in formation. These milestones are an opportunity for the Friars to recommit to their own vows as well as extend their welcome to the newly professed.
The following reflection is from Sam Janson, a 2016 participant in the Franciscan At-One-Ment Mission Project—an eight-week summer discernment internship which includes living with the Friars while engaging in the Friars’ ministries. Sam lived at and ministered to the men of St. Christopher’s Inn. He is pictured next to St. Christopher’s Inn bell.
