Franciscan Experiences

Are you looking for opportunities for prayer and contemplation?


Our Motherhouse provides a beautiful setting for prayer and reflection. In the spirit of Francis and Clare, we invite you to join us throughout the year for liturgy, prayer services and heritage tours.

Mini Pilgrimage

A pilgrimage is a journey inward, a journey of the heart. We invite you to come away for two hours and visit seven shrines and sacred spots on the 89-acre campus. Beginning with the San Damiano Cross located in Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel, you will visit shrines and images that proclaim the life and journey of Francis of Assisi. Spend time reflecting on Francis’s Canticle of the Creatures, the icon of Francis and the Sultan, the Portiuncula Chapel (St. Mary of the Angels), as well as St. Francis and the Wolf of Gubbio. At each stop, we will consider our Franciscan history and take time for prayer and reflection. Lunch is included with the pilgrimage. Groups or individuals may request special tours. 2021 dates: Tuesday, August 31; Thursday, September 9; Thursday, October 7; and Tuesday, November 9 (bad weather date would be Thursday, November 11). Tour begins at 10:00 a.m and lasts until 12:30 p.m. $20, which includes lunch. Call 419-824-3528, email or Register online!

Evening prayer begins at 4:30 pm in Queen of Peace Chapel.
