HOW YOU CAN HELP THE FRIARS SERVE YOU BETTER
Providing advanced notice, "fixed dates," a proposed program, a schedule, and a "time to respond by" are all very helpful to us. Please know that it takes us some time to respond to your requests. We need to schedule apostolic endeavors while balancing our regular committments of prayer, service to the poor, and religious duties. God has blessed us to receive many local, national, and international requests from people every year, and we gladly fulfill as many of them as we can.
TO MAKE AN APOSTOLIC REQUEST
To make an apostolic request of the NM-based friars, please submit the form below, or fax us directly at 505-990-0187. You may also call us at 505-990-3001; however, our phone is often busy and it is easier for us to have something written down to work with whenever possible.
Although the primary mission of the friars is to faithfully live our Franciscan religious life, evangelization is an essential part of our charism. It is our privilege to prayerfully consider your request. Requests may vary widely, from parish missions, talks, youth retreats, pilgrimages, days or evenings of recollection, and many other types. You can be creative! The friars offer all their ministry free of charge and depend entirely on benefactors to sustain our way of life. Travel reimbursement and some free-will offerings, prayerfully discerned, are greatly appreciated. Thank you and may God richly bless you!
