Franciscans of the Eucharist


We have a new website! Please visit to get up to date information. This website will not be updated in the future.

The Franciscans of the Eucharist are a Catholic religious community of men and women in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood. Please see the "charism" and "ministries" pages for more information.

Being rooted in the Eucharist is indispensable to our work. The future scope of ecclesial charity must be based on the "Eucharistic measure": only what does not contradict, but rather finds and draws nourishment from the mystery of Eucharistic love and by the vision of the cosmos, man, and history that flows from it, can guarantee the authenticity of our giving and provide us with a sure foundation on which to build.
