Greetings from the Guardian

Welcome to the web pages of St. Bernardine of Siena Friary, a faith-filled community of Franciscan Friars in the Roman Catholic Church. We hope to provide you with a brief glimpse of our lives, our ministries, and our varied interests. We are a very diverse group of men united by our faith in Jesus Christ and our dedication to the spiritual path of St. Francis of Assisi.

Our friary is located on the campus of Siena College, where most of our brothers serve as professors, administrators and staff members. (We also minister at St. Francis Chapel on Wolf Road in the Town of Colonie, NY.) As members of the Province of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, headquartered in New York City, we are committed to justice, fraternal living and partnership with all people in building the Kingdom of God.

Enjoy your electronic visit and please feel free to contact us with your questions or prayer requests. May the Lord give you peace and every blessing!

Fr. William L. Beaudin, O.F.M.
