 Why Priories?

 Order of Franciscans Ecumenical, Inc. priories are places to minister to married  and celibate Roman Catholic priests 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 priests. The priory 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 priory is where all are welcome to  celebrate Eucharist and other sacraments.
“Let the Church [priories] always be a place of mercy and hope, where everyone is
welcomed, loved and forgiven.” (Pope Francis)
