Franciscan Institutions of Higher Education

Holy Name Province is the religious sponsor to St. Anthony Shrine at Arch Street and two important Franciscan Institutions of Higher Education:  St. Bonaventure University and Siena College, both in New York State.
Many of the friars at Arch Street have strong connections to these two schools, both of which have undergraduate and graduate programs.
