For He has sent them into the world so that they might give witness by word and work to His voice and to make known to all that the Lord alone is God (TOR Rule, 29). 

 The friars of Third Order Regular, animated by the spirit of Franciscan joy and open to constant renewal, endeavor to spend all their energy in advancing the kingdom of God in the world.  Our way of life provides a fraternity where we are nourished and strengthened so that we may go out and be of service to the Church.   In imitation of our founder, we pray to be instruments of peace, pardon, and hope in a world yearning for the good news of Jesus Christ.
