Want to know more?

We welcome men 22 – 45 years of age to consider life as a Friar. Exceptions are made for men over 45 years of age on an individual basis.

Men 18 – 21 years of age are invited to participate in the Lateran Program at Saint Bonaventure University. The program is closely associated with the Franciscans as you pursue an education in a Catholic university.
