Pastoral

The Franciscan friars of Our Lady of the Angels Province live out the call to ministerial service in many different ways. One of the main ways is parish ministry. Since our friars first came to North America, they have served the Catholic Church as pastors, parochial vicars and pastoral ministers in parish communities.
A majority of friars who minister in parishes are ordained priests and therefore have the privilege and responsibility of providing sacramental ministry to the people they serve. As priests they are also called upon to exercise the ministry of preaching. Whether ordained or not, all friars involved in parish ministry are called upon to pray with the people they serve, to offer them spiritual guidance and support, to provide for their religious education and to minister to the sick and the dying. Like St. Francis of Assisi, the friars of Our Lady of the Angels Province offer the people they serve the compassion and the love of Christ.
