Is This Life For You?

During the Discernment Process you will decide if you are ready to answer the call to live a life as a Franciscan Friar.

Is this life for you?

Do you feel a stirring in your heart? Do things that once brought you a great deal of joy no longer capture your interest as before? Well, my brother, take heart! Even Saint Francis had a similar experience as a young man when he was trying to figure out what God was asking of him. He came to discover that God was calling him to live the Gospel of Our Lord in a radical way. Perhaps he is calling you to do the same!

Please contact Fr. Luis Aponte-Merced, OFM, at or by calling 800-827-1982 to find out how you can walk in the footsteps of Christ as a Franciscan Friar.
