Franciscan Friars of the United States of America

Welcome to the US Friar Exchange!

The US Friar Exchange is a resource by and for US friars. Friars across the country can meet, share experiences, collaborate and support each other.

How It Works

  1. Hit the Sign Up button and create a Friar Exchange profile.
  2. Add other information about yourself and uploading your photo.
  3. Finally, do what you came for! Search the Groups directory and invite other friars to join. Look through the Classified Ads. Check out the available documents. Sign up for Google G Suite.

Join → Share → Connect!

Join a Group… or 4

Groups are for like-minded friars to share amongst themselves. They can be set up for ministry types (e.g., Mission Band) or for any reason. Any friar can request groups on the Friar Exchange.


  • Collaborate with other friars
  • Contribute your expertise and opinions
  • Meet other friars

Discuss and Share

Start a discussion in a group’s forum or share resources with other group members.


Promote your ministry, look for a new ministry, or buy or sell Franciscan items using our Classified Ads just — just for for friars.
