Come and See


This Saturday we are hosting a Come and See for single men between the ages of 18 to 40 years old. It will be held in San Antonio, Texas. These retreats are offered at no cost to the men attending. It is an opportunity to meet Franciscan priests and brothers, talk to some of our student friars, and to experience what our life is like.

We spend time in prayer and fraternity. The attendees get an opportunity to see first hand the life of the Conventual Franciscan Friars.

There are three more Come and See retreats scheduled this year:

March 23 to 25 at Mount St. Francis, Indiana

June 15 to 17 at Franciscan Retreats and Spirituality Center in Prior Lake, Minnesota

September 28 to 30 at Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Ohio

October 19 to 21 at Holy Cross Retreat Center in Mesilla Park, New Mexico.

Pray with the Friars - May 24, Dedication of St. Francis Basilica and October 4 for the Feast of St. Francis
