Next door to our Mission Church of St. Patrick the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal provide a faith-filled response to the mission of Jesus Christ by proclaiming the love that God has for the people of Bradford.


The community is seeking to live out the vows of authentic Franciscan life in a way that effectively challenges the worldly values prevalent in every age.  Material poverty, manual labor, complete renunciation of ownership of immovable property, mature and faithful chastity, an active and responsible obedience, and living with and engaging in hands-on work with the materially poor and destitute.










            Our Soup Kitchen is open during the day on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11am-2pm.

           Sandwiches are available on Mon, Fri, Sat, & Sun between 9.30am-4.30pm.

If you are able to volunteer some of your time by helping us on the Tuesday or Thursday Soup Kitchen please contact the Friary.

Praised be Jesus Christ!
