1217-2017, 800 YEARS OF FRANCISCAN PRESENCE IN THE HOLY LAND

This current year is highly significant for us. Precisely 800 years ago, during the Chapter of Pentecost celebrated at Saint Mary of the Angels, in the Portiuncula, Assisi, our Order opened up its vision to the missionary and universal dimension. In that occasion the Chapter decided to send friars in all the regions of the known world, as witnesses of fraternity and peace.
