Priests
 
“Like Melchizedek, you are a priest forever.” (Psalm 110:4)​ Married Roman Catholic priests are priests who married after ordination in the Roman Catholic Church.  A priest is always a priest: “sacred ordination never becomes invalid.” (Canon 290)​​

Why members have friaries?
 
Order of Franciscans Ecumenical and Catholic Order of Franciscans Ecumenical​ friaries are places to minister to celibate and married Roman Catholic (and Catholic) priests and laity by offering them a welcoming home, support, acceptance, affirmation of their marriages, and validation of their lives and ministries. It also welcomes laity who support married and celibate priest. The friary is a place where we are called to live the Franciscan “Rule of Life” and to assist the Order to accomplish its mission, goals, apostolic works, and charism. The friary is where all are welcome to celebrate Eucharist and other sacraments. ​ 
 

Friaries are self-governing, friars and brothers supporting themselves, and their ministries with secular or church-related employment.
