The Franciscan Friars and the community of Mt. Irenaeus invite you to save the date for their annual online auction, Nov. 6-15.

This year’s auction includes a variety of unique items, including original artwork and photography by Mountain founder Fr. Dan Riley, O.F.M., delectable treats created by the friars from the Mountain gardens, and handcrafted wood crosses.  St. Bonaventure University apparel and gifts, along with autographed pro-sports memorabilia, will also be featured.

All proceeds benefit Mt. Irenaeus and support the community’s work to live and share a Franciscan lifestyle of silence, simplicity, solitude, and service.

The prayerful and contemplative lifestyle at Mt. Irenaeus celebrates and proclaims an active awareness of God’s presence with and care for all creatures. The Mountain community, open to all people, ages and cultures, is guided by a resident community of Franciscan Friars who model hospitality and relationship building along with the importance of inclusion and collaboration.
