What an amazing place to be! It must be a work of the Holy Spirit. Franciscan is a holy place, not yet heaven, but a way towards for sure. Ma God bless all its Faculty and Staff members, and its students. That all may continue to spread the Gospel and witness to the Faith.

I've been a student here for almost two years and I've found the experience to be one of the most amazing, life enhancing experiences of my life. I'm at home away from home.
