Join the Holy Land Friars in the Cloister Garden  |  Sunday, May 19, 2019 at 1 PM

Enjoy an afternoon of fellowship, food, flowers, and fun with the Holy Land Franciscan Friars in the Cloister Garden on the grounds of the Franciscan Monastery, an oasis of peace in Washington, DC. Proceeds will support our work in the Holy Land, protecting the holy places and helping Christians in the land of Jesus.

Your Ticket to the Perfect Spring Afternoon

The luncheon begins at 1 p.m., following noon mass in the Monastery church at 1400 Quincy Street, NE in Washington, DC. The Cloister Garden is located on the Monastery grounds. Entertainment includes live music by the Monastery Young Musicians Ensemble.

In addition to helping the Friars preserve Christian sites in the Holy Land, your ticket funds the Friars’ support of schools and missions in the Holy Land and care for refugees and others in need throughout the region.

Tickets are only $45 per person. Make it a family outing: children under 6 are welcome free of charge!

Online registration for tickets closes at 5 p.m. on May 18. For information about ticket availability, please email margherita@myfranciscan.com or call 202-526-6800 Ext. 895.
