Waking up the World with the Joy of the Gospel!

The Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn, officially known as the Congregation of Religious Brothers of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis, were founded in 1858 when two Brothers of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis from Ireland arrived in Brooklyn, NY. Responding to the need to educate the children of immigrants, the Franciscan Brothers brought their tradition as educators in Ireland to New York. Today, the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn proudly continue the 800 year-old Franciscan Tradition as we minister in schools, parishes, and other pastoral ministries of the Catholic Church in the Dioceses of Brooklyn, Rockville Centre, Paterson, NJ and Cape Girardeau, MO.
