How to Help

Welcome, and thank you for helping the Conventual Franciscan Friars of the Province of Our Lady of Consolation.

Since the time of St. Francis and his first followers, our ministries, our ability to serve those in need, the education of new Friars, the care of our senior men – all these things are possible with the partnership of our benefactors.

We thank God always for you and the many others who support us. Through your gifts, you are the instruments of the generosity He bestows on us. Together let us praise Him through the work we do for the least of His sisters and brothers.

Franciscans from all over the world walk toward the town of Assisi to participate in an international Chapter of Mats.

Here in this section, you will be able to find different ways of investing in the work our
Friars do in the United States and in different parts of the world. There is information about gift annuities, and how to remember the Friars in your will.

If you would like to participate in our monthly novena, and make a gift, click here.

Of course, you can always just make a gift. The Make A Gift button will take you to the page where you can fill out a form with your information. Be sure to include your prayer requests – an important part of our daily lives is to pray for the intentions of our friends and supporters.
