About St. Francis of Assisi
hope and vision is to spread the word of Christ and to “Live Our Lord’s Gospel”, to be enlightened by the
Holy Spirit into a “Call to Holiness”, and to “Encounter Christ” in our every day lives in prayer
and charity. Our main apostolate, among many, is dedicated to support the Holy
Name Friary Nursing Home Community operated by the Franciscan Friars of the Province of the Most Holy Name in Ringwood State Park, northern New Jersey. Our Franciscan Family meets every 3rd Sunday of the month at the
Holy Name Friary in Ringwood.
