As a priest of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, the Friar remains a follower in the footsteps of Jesus in the manner of
St. Francis and the Franciscan tradition. He serves the poor and participates in daily friary life. At the heart of his ministry is the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and the preaching of the Holy Gospel.
“[The] Lord gave me, and gives me still, such faith in priests…because, in this world, I see nothing corporally of the Most High Son of God except His most holy Body and Blood which they receive and they alone administer to others".
(St. Francis of Assisi, Testament)
