What We Do
The Franciscan Friars of the Province of the Immaculate Conception are involved in a variety of ministries.
Many of our friars serve in Parish Ministry, tending to the daily needs of the people of God in New England, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, and West Virginia in the United States. We are also present in the Greater Toronto Area in Canada. Our friars also staff two Retreat Centers: one in Wappingers Falls, NY and one in Caledon, Ontario, Canada.
We have missions in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. In addition to these ministries, a number of friars are engaged in other specialized ministry such as: Chaplaincies in Hospitals, Nursing Homes, and Schools; ministry to African-American; ministry to the poor and the homeless.
