Waking up the World with the Joy of the Gospel!

I am delight to have this opportunity to welcome you to the Franciscan Brothers website. As you explore, navigate and enjoy this virtual experience, I am sure you will get to know and learn more about us. Since 1858 we continue to live our story of service to the People of God. Our Faith is steadfast as we move forward.  We are Franciscan Brothers to all of God’s people, since we live in relationship with each person we meet. Each day the brothers are grounded in faith as we gather for daily prayer. Usually this is followed by sharing a common meal together so we can enjoy conversation and laughter with each other.  

Let us always be amazed by the extravagance of God’s love and care. This is a new day to receive God’s favor. Keep your faith alive in abundance.


May Saint Francis and Saint Clair bless you,

Brother Gabriel O’Brien, O.S.F


Superior General
