Mission & Vision

Our Vision

The Franciscan Church of the Assumption is a community that cares for all of God’s creation and where all are welcomed and honored; singles and families, rich and poor, young and old, devout and searching, those differently abled, LGBTQ+, immigrants and refugees.  We are a vibrant, inclusive, and loving community that seeks to be financially sustainable, supported by a diverse base of volunteers who together with the friars and sisters serve the physical, mental and spiritual needs of those thirsting for meaning and purpose in Syracuse and beyond.

Our Mission

To heal wounds, to bind what is broken, to bring home those who are lost. – Legend of the Three Companions of Saint Francis

The Franciscan Friars Conventual and Assumption Church respectfully acknowledge and celebrate the traditional owners of the lands throughout Central New York and pay their respect to the members of the Onandaga Nation and Haudenosaunee Confederacy of past, present and future generations.
