We Franciscan Friars of Our Lady of the Angels Province, Order of Friars Minor Conventual (OFM Conv.) are members of a worldwide Roman Catholic fraternity (Religious Men) who follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the spirit of our founder, St. Francis of Assisi. We invite you to take some time to explore all of our website to learn about us and our various ministries.



Birthday, Profession, Ordination and Death Anniversaries for The Order of Friars Minor Conventual (OFM Conv.) throughout the World

As our friars serve throughout the East Coast of North America, as well as in Italy, Japan, Great Britain, Ireland and Brazil, it was important for our province to be able to find a way to let all of the friars have a better understanding of the work of their confreres, in different areas. This video was created to share our province history and future with all of our friars serving in the vast ministries. Although originally created for the friars to view, we felt it would be a great resource for all to learn more about us. Enjoy!
