We are a place of Franciscan culture and learning, located in the historic English pilgrim city of Canterbury, catering to an international religious and lay student body. We teach and research Franciscan Studies, theology and spirituality, host sabbaticals and offer spiritual direction. Our motto of “Holiness and Learning” exemplifies the combination of academic excellence and spiritual renewal within a warm community life that we seek to build here.
