Franciscans of the Eucharist of Chicago


The Franciscans of the Eucharist of Chicago are a Catholic religious community living and serving in Chicago’s West Humboldt Park neighborhood. Our life centers upon our relationship with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Out of our life of prayer flow our apostolates–Eucharistic Adoration, service to the poor, Evangelization and teaching. We believe that if you can’t see Jesus in the Eucharist, you can’t see Him in the poor. Come join us as we work to serve our brothers and sisters in need!


“Hold back nothing of yourselves for yourselves, that He who gives Himself totally to you, may receive you totally!” ~ St. Francis of Assisi
