The Franciscan Difference

A Franciscan education offers a unique, Christ-centered viewpoint into Catholicism. Franciscan spirituality is faithful to the gospel and the Church, rooted in prayer, contemplation, and most importantly, service. Franciscans are committed to upholding the inherent dignity of creation, manifesting a profound reverence for the human person as one made in God’s image and likeness, and esteem all creatures as brothers and sisters–a reflection of God’s goodness and glory.
