What Is a Friar To Do?
Pretty much anything according to St. Francis -- making sure the spirit of prayer is not extinguished.
To this end, the members of the Assumption Province are doing ministry (working) in parishes, schools, hospital and sisters chaplaincies, construction, web designer, and soup kitchens. Historically they have ventured into many exciting areas of work.
It is an historical charactertistic of the Franciscan Order that the friars are with the people. This presence can occur on many levels. It is limited only by the imagination of the friar and the current administration.
