New Postulant Class 2020

T.O.R. Postulant Class

 From L-R:  Anthony Beltran, Matthew Crotteau, Matthew Bobby, Fr. Pat Whittle, T.O.R., Director of Postulants/Formation

The Third Order Regular of Saint Francis, Province of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus received two new postulants into the 2020 postulant class during the month of September.  The postulancy program introduces men to the Franciscan religious life as they join the community in their daily prayer, ministry, fraternity and studies.  At the end of the postulant year, men will discern whether to enter into the Novitiate and formally begin their religious life as Franciscans.

The postulants live at Saint Louis Friary in Washington, DC with the Friars with the friars who are studying for the priesthood or an advanced degree for ministry.
