The Franciscans of the Immaculate, who occupy the premises, strive to live a life of love for God and neighbor by following their community schedule and observing their vows of: Total consecration to Mary, Obedience, Poverty and Chastity. Our aim, after the example of St. Maximilian M. Kolbe, is to employ the use of every skill and tool available to bring everyone to Christ through Mary; who was his last, parting gift to us from the Cross.
