About

Pascha Pict 2019Since the beginning of our family in 2004, we have always enjoyed a good journey to somewhere holy or interesting. Our family name Friar comes from a mendicant monastic order in the Middle Ages which traveled from place to place rather than remain in a cloister. Over the years, our desire to travel has brought us to numerous encounters in different parts of the world. It is our hope in reading this blog, that you will glean much in the way of contemporary spiritual nourishment to guide you in the path to the Kingdom of Heaven.
