Our name in Latin is: Missionarii Franciscani Verbi Aeterni. Hence, our initials are: MFVA.

Welcome to the website of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word.

We are a Catholic religious order for men, located in the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama, and are associated with Mother Angelica  and the Eternal Word Television Network .

This website is primarily intended to provide information for young men who are thinking about pursuing the priesthood or religious life.  However, it is open to anyone who would like to look through it.

A special word of thanks to our benefactors who have supported us spiritually and financially for many years.  Be assured, that we pray for you and your families every day.

May God bless you and Our Lady protect you and your loved ones!
