Members of the Franciscan Friars, TOR, dedicate their lives to following the footsteps of Saint Francis. Our friars serve as pastors in parishes, teach in schools, minister in hospitals, and offer spiritual direction for the Secular Franciscans and staff two major retreat centers. We are able to carry out God’s will through the generosity of our donors and benefactors like you. Please support the work of our Province and give a gift today.
An unrestricted support will be used where the need is greatest. We currently are in need of funds to support our retired and infirmed friars at our Monastery, we need funding to sustain our daily ministries and to continue our outreach to the poor at home and in the TOR Missions.

TOR Retirement Fund
Even though our friars retire from active parish ministry, they continue to offer Masses and pray for our benefactors daily. Many friars who remain in good health, remain active by volunteering and helping those in need. You can help give a gift that will allow a retired Franciscan to live his remaining years with dignity. Please help fund the many needs of our retired friars today.
Current funding priorities include, funding to provide transportation for medical appointments, provide for special meal plans and dietary restrictions, medical and health care needs, updating the friaries and Monastery to help our handicap friars in their every day needs, and entertainment to keep their minds and bodies active.
Thank you for taking care of our retired friars. God bless you for providing this important ministry.
