Join the Circle of St. Francis

You can help the Monastery remain a vibrant and visible signpost of faith, hope and peace in a challenging world.

For 800 years, the Franciscan friars have been a peaceful presence in the Holy Land, preserving Christianity and caring for the holy Christian shrines and the people.

Persecution and a declining Christian population in the Middle East make their work increasingly important. The Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America supports this mission.

Our church, replicas of Holy Land shrines and gardens provide an “oasis of peace” in Washington, DC. Visitors experience the physical and spiritual journey they seek close to home while helping Christianity remain and thrive in the land of Christ.
