Friends of the Friars is a non-profit corporation formed to support the life and
the works of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in Albuquerque, New Mexico.





Our Mission:



We provide and maintain physical resources for the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (CFRs) so that they can serve and minister to the materially poor in New Mexico. These resources include housing for members of the order (a Friary), a chapel for prayer and Catholic religious services, and facilities to offer meals, clothing or other material needs to the poor.
