Friars of the Sacred Heart Province
The Third Order Regular of St. Francis, (known as Franciscans, T.O.R.), is a religious community of Catholic priests and brothers dedicated to God. Our beginnings can be found in the Penitents of the Middle Ages: people who were seeking holiness in their daily lives. Francis of Assisi was himself a Penitent, but he gave this movement a new direction and spirit. The Third Order Regular of St. Francis has since become an international religious community serving God's people in many countries throughout the world.
The Friars of the Sacred Heart Province serve at two universities, Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio and St. Francis University, Loretto, PA. They also serve at many parishes throughout the United States.
