We, the friars of St. Bernardine of Siena Friary, believe we are called by the Holy Spirit to live the Gospel as brothers and to serve the Kingdom of God as ministers within the Catholic Church in the Franciscan Province of the Most Holy Name.
As Friars Minor we are committed to peace, justice and the integrity of creation, and to making those values concrete in the lives of those we serve. In the spirit of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are guided by the centrality of prayer and a commitment to education and pastoral ministry at Siena College and in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany NY.
Accepting and living the Gospel, our Siena community aspires to be a witness to fraternity in a fragmented world. We strive to be hospitable to all who come to us. As friars we are committed to evangelization and to the promotion of a life of service to others.
