True to our tradition and history, a number of friars serve as itinerant preachers, traveling extensively in order to proclaim the Gospel at parish missions, retreat centers, and religious communities. Many friars also provide pastoral care to thousands of people at the parishes we staff, and engage college and graduate students at our university Newman Centers.
