We are a Catholic Franciscan program that accepts people of all faiths as well as people who do not identify with any particular faith tradition. If you are not a practicing Catholic, you will be asked to attend Mass and are invited to participate to the level that you feel comfortable (during program events such as retreats or orientation). If you are a practicing Catholic, we ask that you remain open and willing to engage and participate in spirituality with community members who are not Catholic.


  • Interacting with other humans and all of creation in sister-brotherhood.

  • Weekly dinners and time with the friars
