In Bradford, the needs of the poor and destitute are many. The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal offer a space in which physical, spiritual, and social needs can be met. Visitors are always greeted with a smile! Each Friar has a strong sense of what it means to give service with an underlying sense of dignity. The Friar's caring hospitality is essential for those seeking refuge and rest from the clamour of the city. Since the COVID pandemic, the number of those coming to the Friar's has doubled and they now offer lunch to over 150 people daily.

Singing, prayers, scripture, healing and evangelisation are an integral part of the Friars mission. They offer a harbour for everyone!

The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal need help to raise funds for their ongoing work of evangelisation at St Patrick's Mission Bradford, they invite you to participate in or offer sponsorship of the stunningly sublime ONE Peak Challenge Walk or the THREE Peaks Challenge on 12th August 2023.

It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching. St Francis of Assisi.
