Advent Parish Mission

Discovering the Heart of God

We welcome back to Mother Seton Parish the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal from December 9-11, 2019

The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal The Franciscans of the Renewal were founded in 1987 in response to St. John Paul II’s call for the renewal of religious life. The friars are seeking to return to the primitive inspiration of St Francis who heard the call of Jesus, “Repair my House.” They participate in Christ’s renewal of all things with an emphasis on ongoing personal, communal, and ecclesial renewal. This takes place through their life of prayer, fraternity and mission. Apostolically their life is to live with and serve the materially poor as well as to preach the Holy Gospel wherever they may be sent.
