The worldwide Franciscan Order has been blessed with thousands of young men who have answered Christ’s call to follow in the footsteps of St. Francis and serve the poor. These young men have chosen to live and preach the Gospel as they serve as Franciscan priests.

The seminarians must live the Franciscan community life and deepen their dedication to God. To see more details on the formation process select the ‘Learn More’ button below.
