Open House


Consider Civic Friaryship

With a desire for prayer, men and women everywhere are seeking something deeper in their lives by the work they do, the places of Community and Church connections, and the friendships in Christ that are both signposts and gifts of a concrete path towards Heaven. You may be a perfect candidate for joining us as a fellow Civic Friar! We host several “Come, See & Taste Open House” days throughout the year.
