In the city of Bradford, the needs of the poor and destitute are many. Our intention is to provide a space in which some of their physical, spiritual, and social needs can be met. The warmth of our hospitality and the beauty of the environment are essential in our care for those seeking refuge and rest from the clamour of the city.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ and the example and life of St. Francis of Assisi informs all of our outreach to the poor and destitute. To find out more about the life and work of the Friars please visit www.cfrfranciscans.co.uk.
