AssumptionBVM Province OFM

We are Franciscans, brothers embraced by Mystery which shapes our trust in God and one another. God's Providence has sustained our ministries, made us resilient, and freed us to be open to change. This freedom fosters our unique commitment as a Roman and Byzantine Catholic community to re-shape OFM life in response to the changes in our churches and world.

The joy of the Gospel urges us to the periphery, where God's love impels us to invite others to the experience of Christ's mercy and forgiveness.

Glory to Jesus Christ!  Glory Forever!
Slava Isusu Christu!  Slava na v'iki!

Praise God with joyful song!
