“Rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Edmundite Southern Missions stands with poor Black children, families and elders as we feed the poor, clothe the needy, shelter the homeless and educate God’s people to break the yoke of poverty in the Deep South.”
-From our Mission Statement
Edmundite Missions has been fulfilling our calling for more than 77 years by quietly serving the poor living in the poverty-stricken communities of the Deep South. What began in 1937 as a courageous fight for victims of discrimination in Alabama’s Black Belt quickly broadened to include outreach ministries of compassion, providing for the essential daily needs of food, clothing and shelter to those stricken by extreme poverty. The Edmundite Missions serves poor and marginalized children, families, young adults and seniors of all faith traditions to meet their immediate needs while addressing the long term issues of systemic poverty in the Deep South.
As a Catholic organization, rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, our commitment is to provide the programs and essential services that address some of the most pressing issues affecting those living in some of the poorest counties in America. Also, we are constantly and prayerfully evolving our programs and creating new ministries to help lead those in poverty from hopelessness to self-sustainability, from education programs to apprenticeship opportunities. We carry out our commitment to the people of this region guided by our motto, taken from our founder Father Frank Casey, SSE “do the best we can, with what little we have, to serve those most in need.”

Women deserve better than abortion.

The Franciscan Friars, Third Order Regular (TOR) of the Immaculate Conception Province, follow Christ in the footsteps of Saint Francis. We are a fraternity of men who freely vow ourselves to living in communion as brothers. We strive to live the gospel through gentleness, hospitality, and service. We seek to address the changing needs of the Church and the world by calling ourselves and others to prayer and conversion. More about us: Since the 1920s friars from the Province of the Immaculate Conception have served in a wide range of ministries. Our friars continue to serve in parishes with immigrant communities, in schools as educators and counselors, staff retreat centers as spiritual directors, and are advocates for the poor through Peace and Justice Ministry. In the beginning we built a Monastery to minister to Italian immigrants in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, and were blessed by generous donations that allowed us to reach out and build churches, schools, and communities of faith in Paraguay, and around the world through the international mission work of the TORs in South America, Africa, Asia and Europe. Our international body consists of friars in twelve countries. We rely on charitable donations to meet the needs of many of the Province’s earliest friars who are retired and to educate new priests to carry on our ministry. Our ministry continues to evolve and emphasize the spiritual path of continual conversion, constantly turning our lives over to God by dedicating ourselves to gospel poverty in the vision of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis of Assisi, and by sharing this gift with the Church, and the world.
For 800 years, the Roman Catholic Church has entrusted the guardianship of the Christian shrines in the Holy Land to the Order of St. Francis. This work by the Franciscan friars has grown to include schools and missions in the Holy Land, and care for the children, families, refugees and others in need throughout the region. The Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America, located in Washington, DC, sustains this 800-year mission of the Franciscan Friars in the Holy Land through education, vocations, pilgrimages and pastoral ministry for local and visiting Catholics and all people of good will. The Monastery is home to a thriving Franciscan community, self sustaining and capable of fulfilling its mission on behalf of the Holy Land, its Friars and the Church Universal.
Founding Grace and Mission: After the example of St. Francis of Assisi, we are contemplative-active Sisters who spend half of our time interceding for the world through prayer, and the rest of our time in ministry among the poor, the elderly, youth, young adults on college campuses, and at parishes and retreats where we evangelize, seeking to bring renewal of the fullness of Catholic life. As a joyful, vibrant and growing religious community, founded in 1988 n Steubenville Ohio, we express our love for God and neighbor by devotion to prayer and to the spiritual and corporal works of mercy
