Mission Statement of the Franciscan Custody

"We, the friars of the Holy Family Custody, have been chosen by God to live our Christian calling in Franciscan fraternity, simplicity and prayerfulness. We share this charism with the Croatian immigrants, their descendants and all others in whose lives we share through the generosity of God. We do this specifically through our parish ministry, publications, educational programs, evangelization efforts and through other forms of ministry appropriate to our calling. We journey with others as pilgrims making our way to the eternal kingdom in which God's rule will be fully established."
