A faith community in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi. Served by the Franciscan Friars of the Province of St. Barbara.

“We came to California when my husband got transferred with the military and joined Mission San Luis Rey Parish back in 1978, explains Marta Werner.  We felt so welcomed by the Franciscan community that we became involved in the parish ministry.  A year later my husband Ray was sent overseas for a year.  I don’t know what I would have done without the support of my parish family.  I was alone, working in a very stressful job, with a 5-year old and no immediate family in the area.  My parish family stepped in and supported me and my daughter during a period of time when we needed it the most.  Now many years later, I am still involved, I continue to call this Franciscan Community “Family” and I will always be grateful!”
