On behalf of the IFC-TOR welcome!
The IFC-TOR web site is conceived of as an instrument of collaboration and peace. It is a meeting point for those who wish to know about us and have news of the International Franciscan Conference-TOR.

It hopes to be a source of information and a means to know the history of the Brothers and Sisters of the Third Order Regular, the aims of the Conference, in how many and which countries of the world they are present members, their addresses and important information about each associated Institution.

In addition the site has the messages issued during the last General Assembly (a meeting held every four years in Assisi).

The IFC-TOR publishes a periodical Propositum, as a further means of sharing the message of the Franciscan Family.
