• "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity." 

    --Psalm 133:1

    Men's households at Franciscan University provide a "home away from home," where men challenge each other to develop authentic Christian friendships in which each person may grow in virtue and in Christ. Household brothers build each other through regular prayer, sports, charitable efforts, and mutual support, guided by a Christ-centered charism unique to their household.
