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. Today, our friars minister in more than 40 parishes throughout the East Coast and Canada. You can check out a list of these parishes, and explore their individual websites, here.
