Prayers for the Dead: The Third Order Regular of the Franciscan Friars is from the Order of Penance. As penitents, the friars are especially called to witness to a message of conversion (turning to God) to those who frequently feel alienated or abandoned and to also pray for the souls of the departed.
Enrollments: Enrollments enable you or a loved one to be remembered by the Mass Association for a specific period of time. Our Health and Healing enrollment is a very popular choice for the health and wellbeing of a loved one who is remembered in our prayers for as long as the person needs them.
