Welcome to the Franciscan International Study Centre website. We are a place of Franciscan Christian culture and learning, catering to an international religious and lay student body, teaching theology and Franciscan Studies at undergraduate, graduate and research degree level. Our motto of “Holiness and Learning” exemplifies the combination of a spiritually enriching community life with academic excellence that we seek to build here at the Centre. We also offer conferences, occasional retreats, the Ex Corde lecture series and distance learning in Franciscan spirituality. We hope you enjoy visiting this site and, please, do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
We welcome with especial joy the publication of the Encyclical Laudato Si’, which can be viewed here. Its two concluding prayers are available here: A prayer for our earth; A Christian prayer in union with creation.
