The Religious Brothers of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis were founded in 1858 when two Brothers of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis arrived in Brooklyn, NY, from Ireland. Responding to the need to educate the children of immigrants, the Franciscan Brothers brought their tradition as educators in Ireland to New York. Today, the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn continue the over 800 year-old Franciscan tradition of “Making Christ Present” as we minister in the educational and pastoral ministries of the Roman Catholic Church. We currently minister in the Dioceses of Brooklyn and Rockville-Centre, NY, Paterson, NJ, and Cape Girardeau, MO as teachers, administrators, campus ministers, college professors, counselors, lawyers, nurses, spiritual directors, retreat leaders, and pastoral ministers.
