Our Franciscan Friars Conventual located at the Shrine of St. Anthony, Ellicott City, Maryland are now making our Franciscan Soy Candles on-site. What started as a hobby for Brother Andre became a ministry for the Franciscan Charity Fund in 2012. Today, with Br. Andre as an advisor, Brother Brian has taken over the handcrafting of theses custom made wood wick, soy candles. These candles are Friar made in the USA.
