More than five years since our founding and following a two-year temporary closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Saint Francis of Assisi Research Library, Spirituality Center, and Bookstore are finally poised to open our doors to the public with an open house on Friday, December 8 and Saturday, December September 9, 2023. Save the date!

During our “down time”, we have been busy acquiring hundreds of new books, re-organizing our categories, adding new collections and archives, commissioned and added more Franciscan art, and accomplished a complete remodel of our library. In addition, we have updated our bookstore and created a new spirituality center offering special programs and presentations on prayer, Franciscan spirituality, care for creation, interfaith dialogue, book signings, and more to our community. Whew! That was a lot of work, but now it’s time to celebrate with an open house designed with YOU in mind!

In conjunction with Hope Center Houston’s annual Nativity & Menorah Exhibition, please plan on joining us for a special presentation, ribbon cutting, tour, and light refreshments at the library. Details are below. Hope you can join us!
