Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

CFR General Chapter

Please pray for us!

All of the friars in final vows from around the world will be meeting for our General Chapter from June 8-18. Like the friars in the days of Saint Francis, we will begin on Pentecost – come Holy Spirit! We will be praying, discussing, discerning and electing leadership.
