The Conventual Franciscan Friars of Marytown ask for your support of our ministries. By supporting our work, you become a fellow laborer in the fields of the Lord. (I Cor. 3:9).

Chapel Foundation – Our ministries include Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, considered one of the most beautiful pilgrimage sites in the nation. The Chapel has been a sanctuary of perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament since 1928. The Chapel is open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for Eucharistic Adoration and prayer. In addition to adoration, we offer twice daily masses and four times daily we celebrate the Liturgy of the Hours with the public. Our on-line Perpetual Adoration and Chapel- cam are viewed by tens of thousands of people all over the world.

General Support of the Conventual Franciscans – Marytown is a Conventual Franciscan Friary carrying out the call of our father St. Francis to “heal wounds, unite what has fallen apart, and to bring home those who have lost their way.” We are deeply committed to the Holy Father’s call for the New Evangelization. Your support of Marytown will enable the Friars to continue their work to promote the New Evangelization, increase vocations, and support our work to win the world for the Sacred Heart Jesus through consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
