The Franciscan Monastery sustains an 800-year mission of the Franciscan Friars in the Holy Land through education, fundraising, recruiting vocations, promoting pilgrimages and providing pastoral ministry locally to religious and lay Catholics and to all of good will.
800 years ago, the Roman Catholic Church entrusted the guardianship of the Holy Land and Christian shrines to the Order of St. Francis. This work includes support of schools, protection and upkeep of shrines and care for refugees and other needy people.
It is through your support and your donations that the Franciscan Monastery is able to continue to support Christians living in the Holy Land. The Franciscan Monastery is home to a thriving Franciscan community; self sustaining and capable of fulfilling its mission.
