Franciscan Friars of the Renewal


In addition our mission of evangelization in the Church is through preaching and teaching the Holy Gospel, and by sharing the rich treasures of our Catholic faith with all. Some expressions of this apostolate are: providing missionary centers for the poor, street evangelization, parish missions, young adult retreats, college missions, days of recollection, pilgrimages, Youth 2000 retreats, and sacramental ministry.  

“Do not be afraid to go out into the streets and into public places, like the first Apostles who preached Christ and the good news of salvation in the city squares, towns, and villages. This is not time to be ashamed of the gospel. It is the time to preach it from the rooftops. Do not be afraid to break out of comfortable and routine modes of living, in order to take up the challenge of making Christ known in modern “metropolis.” It is you who must go out into the by-rounds and invite everyone you meet to the banquet which God has prepared for his people. The Gospel must not be kept hidden because of fear or indifference. It is has to be put on a stand so that people may see its light and give praise to the Heavenly Father.”

-John Paul II, World Youth Day ’93
